New gallery from old mill

Visitors are attracted to stone carvings at the Han Tianheng Art Gallery in Jiading District, which opened last week. The free gallery was created from the historic 1940s Feilian Textile Mill, at a cost of 100 million yuan (US$16.4 million).

The gallery is named after renowned artist and collector Han Tianheng, who donated 1,136 artworks — including Chinese traditional paintings, carved seals and calligraphy — to the district government. The mill’s five-story red-brick chimney and the typical 1940s roof have been retained, in a tribute to the building’s industrial heritage.
