In June of 2010, after more than 20 years nurturing a relationship, the Southern Oregon China Connection sponsored the very successful first annual Southern Oregon – China Tourism, Investment and Education Conference. For the 2011 Conference, Southern Oregon China Connection has invited Mr. Ma Weihua, a well-known Chinese calligrapher, to attend the conference and bring examples of his current work for display and sale.
Mr. Ma’s Calligraphy is presented on different materials in various ways from paper to wood, bamboo, china and stone.

It has become a symbol of Chinese tourism and a representative work that brings to the world oriental aesthetics and the time-honored cultural tradition of the Chinese nation.
