Phoenix Art Palace Museum is the first non-profit professional art museum for oil paintings in the Jiangnan area. Located on Phoenix Island, Jincheng Bay Park by the Taihu Lake in Wuxi, it was established by Phoenix Arts Group to undertake social responsibility and to realize cultural ideals. The Museum name was inscribed by Mr. Jin Shangyi. With an exhibition area of 1,500 square meters, it can display more than 100 artworks at a time. It mainly exhibits contemporary easel paintings and provides a display platform for excellent young Chinese contemporary oil painters in order to promote Chinese easel paintings to the world.
Phoenix Art Palace Museum upholds the academic philosophy of freedom, independence, inclusion and openness. Its long-term goal is to build an outstanding international art museum. With the encouragement of the government to build private art institutes, Phoenix Art Palace Museum promotes the in-depth development of Chinese easel paintings. Meanwhile, it holds urgently needed aesthetic education activities about contemporary easel paintings and conducts in-depth and comprehensive international academic exchanges. Since its establishment in June 2012, it has presented more than 20 national-level exhibitions with academic importance, artistic value and collection value for the audience in the Jiangnan area. Exhibitions such as "Chinese Expression", "Trace of Source", "New Abstraction", "Phoenix China • Young Artists Program", "Inheritance and Progress", and "Research Representational • Classical Realism" have had profound influence in the domestic art circle. More than one hundred well-known artists, including Jin Shangyi, Zhan Jianjun, Shang Yang, Yang Feiyun, Luo Zhongli, Sui Jianguo, Zhan Wang, Yu Xiaofu, Zhou Changjiang, etc. have come to the museum and communicated with the audience in the Jiangnan area.
The museum’s function of public cultural education also becomes increasingly prominent. Seminars and appreciation salons have brought rare opportunities for the development of oil paintings in the Jiangnan area. As a national art coordinate located by the Taihu Lake, Phoenix Art Palace Museum is becoming a beautiful cultural sight with stronger vitality and wilder influence in the Jiangnan area.
