About Me 個人簡介:
Leland Wong's art has been part of the Bay area’s Asian American community for more than thirty-seven years. Born in 1952, he grew up in San Francisco’s Chinatown, surrounded by art goods and curios sold in his family’s business on Grant Avenue.

His father, Fueng Wah Wong’s longstanding interest in art greatly influenced Leland Wong, so that by the age of fourteen, he already sought to become an artist. Actively involved with print making and photography since high school, Wong first began designing posters and handbills for street fairs and local Chinese community events. These emerging interests led to his enrollment in San Francisco State University, where he earned a BFA in 1975.

During the 1970s, he also became involved with Kearny Street Workshop, a Chinatown/ Manilatown community art group, where he produced posters and conducted workshops in screen printing and photography. Wong designed his first Nihonmachi Street Fair poster at Kearny Street in 1974, inaugurating a highly popular series that has continued for nearly three decades, while simultaneously working on projects with various community service organizations. He remains active in the community as an artist, screen printer and photographer.

Leland Wong’s prints and photography have been widely published and exhibited in both national and regional venues. Among them are: The Corcoran Gallery (Washington, D.C.), San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, Oakland Museum, the de Young Museum, Children’s Art Museum (Oakland), National Japanese American Historical Society, Asian Resource Gallery, Chinatown Community Arts Gallery, SOMARTS Gallery, and Chinese Culture Center.

Hoping...Not on the Menu 2 is beginning to cook

Posted on September 23, 2014 at 8:41am 0 Comments

we're talking of a photo exhibit again with Corky Lee and I for 2016.

We're hoping Ryan Lee Wong of New York will be the guest curator for this exhibit. Hoping Judy Yung to be writing the blurb.

In the meantime CCC will be fundraising for this milestone exhibit.  This is a follow up to our exhibit in 1981.  We're hoping to do a publication too.

So we will stay healthy and keep our knees in shape for the two year wait.  Hoping.

Not on the Menu 2

Back in 1981 Corky Lee and I had a photo exhibit at the Chinese Culture Center.  The theme was about Chinatowns of New York and San Francisco.  We're trying to see if we can do a follow up exhibit 33 years years later.

Today we are…


The making of Hidden Dragon

Deep Roots and New Shoots 2 is the second party of a previous exhibit at the National Japanese American Historical Society gallery.  In this exhibit, we were supposed to show our latest artwork.  Me and my big mouth told them I was going to paint a special painting for this exhibit.

Well...when it came to the deadline of submitting artwork, I haven't even got started.  So after three days…


Icons of Presence Exhibition

Thank you everyone who attended the exhibition.

A special thanks to the CCC staff to providing the facilities. The curators Nancy and Lenore for all their hardwork. To Margo Machida who got this all started and making share we are counted in the history of Asian American art.

And for that great opening night...a lot of people told me they really enjoyed the event. It was an honor to have been a part of this exhibition and a milestone…


A Great Opening for Icons

Posted on October 26, 2008 at 1:07pm 0 Comments

Thank you everyone who made it out to the opening on October 23rd. There was enough food to go around...or was there? But I was glad to see everyone come out. People whom I haven't seen in a while. As well as meeting new people. That's what it's all about.

I've been to several funerals and memorials within the last year and it's so bad that it takes a funeral to get a lot of us old friends together. So just having this get together over my art… Continue
