There will be an artist reception on Saturday from 4:30 to 6 p.m., at the Michael S. Currier Center on the campus of The Putney School, 418 Houghton Brook Road, Putney.

This survey of Cai's work includes her portraits and landscapes of the 1980s, "Edge" series of the '90s, "WuJi (Infinity Within)" series of the past decade and recent monumental portraits.

Cai was in the first generation of art students at universities in China reopening after the Cultural Revolution.

This four-decade retrospective at Currier Center of Cai's work traces a path from the Hai Pai Shanghai Style of the '80s, with color used straight from the tube and brushwork with bold and loose strokes, to the present through a selection of Cai's portraits, landscapes and abstractions.

Selected landscapes from Cai's "Earth & Sky" series may also be viewed at Vermont Artisan Designs, 106 Main St., Brattleboro.
