Yuemei Zhang was born in Shanghai and studied printmaking and fine art for her undergraduate and graduate study at Central Fine Art Academy, Beijing China. She is the art director of Eastern Arts Connection, Inc. and taught printmaking and fine art at colleges and universities for over twenty years. Currently she lives in Avon CT. Her artworks have been collected by the National Art Museum and CAFA Art museum in Beijing, China, as well as by private collectors and galleries in the US, Canada, Hong Kong and Germany. Zhang’s unique artworks reflect her passion for Eastern Art. She is the recipient of many awards in both the US and China. Dave Drury, journalist for the Hartford Courant writes, “Zhang’s …artist roots remain firmly planted in her native China,” highlighting Zhang’s strong intertwining of her eastern roots with her artistic western printmaking techniques.

Eric Goldberg Barnes Residency

I am a fortunate man. I too have a postal carrier who possesses the attributes that Van Gogh expressed in his portrait of Joseph Roulin. Barbara Jean Griffin has been delivering my mail since I moved to my present address in 2012. Her open, friendly disposition was apparent from our first meeting. In the years I have known her, she has proven to be a person of genuine warmth, intelligence, integrity and wisdom. It was an honor to have her sit for me.
