Exhibit by Taiwanese Artists
Sandy is a Taiwanese artist with over 40 years of industry experience in the creative fields and design. She was invited by Pauline Huang to exhibit at A World of Orchids and create a special piece to celebrate this year’s show. Using three different media—watercolor, colored pencil, and pastel—Sandy’s vibrant and colorful piece shows elegant stalks of the gladiolus (sword lily), her father’s favorite flower. The orchid-like blooms symbolize strength and integrity.

A Message from Ambassador Lee
On behalf of the Taipei Economic and Cultural Office in New York (TECO-NY), I would like to welcome you to the seventh annual Taiwan: A World of Orchids to be held at the beautiful Queens Botanical Garden (QBG) from October 16 to 18. A total of 500 pots of exquisite Taiwanese orchids, including some exotic breeds, will be on display.
Besides the focus of the show, orchids, there are also paintings, photography, and other artworks by Taiwanese artists Sandy Yeh, Joseph Hsu, and some of the brilliant artists from the North America Pastel Artists Association. Their artworks and music manifest the wonderful spirit of Taiwan.
As the world comes under siege by the pandemic and traveling is restricted, now more than ever, we would like to bring the beauty of Taiwan to your neighborhoods, here in the international borough
of Queens. Together, let’s celebrate the natural and aesthetic beauty of Taiwan, famous for its rich and striking flora and the orchids that are the pride of our nation.
We also appreciate the QBG’s efforts and thoughtfulness in keeping the orchid display open to the public while observing all necessary Covid-19
Please come and enjoy Taiwan: A World of Orchids for a glimpse of our beautiful country. Be sure to visit the art exhibition, breath some fresh air, and of course, explore the Queens Botanical Garden.
