An Expanded Permanent Version of
Beyond the Gate: A Tale of Portland’s Historic Chinatowns Beyond the Gate was created as a temporary exhibit for the Oregon Historical Society by Dr. Jacqueline Peterson-Loomis with the help of Carey Wong, Exhibition Designer, Jennifer Fang, Associate Curator, and the Portland Chinatown History Foundation. It was presented for three months in spring, 2016 and then dismantled. We are deeply grateful to the Oregon Historical Society for helping the Foundation bring the Chinatown community’s story home.

Man of Letters
A Retrospective Exhibition
April 4th through June 17th, 2019
at the Portland Chinatown Museum
In fifteen original compositions of English letters and Chinese characters formed in pen and brush work, Man of Letters traces the career of acclaimed Oregon calligrapher Allen Wong. Youngest son of Wong On, poet, and founder of Hung Far Low. Allen spent 19 years as a graphic designer in New York City before returning to Oregon to start the Graphic Arts program at Oregon State University. Influenced by Lloyd Reynold’s modern calligraphy movement, Wong developed his own style of abstract impressionist Chinese calligraphy. His work has been exhibited throughout the United States and Europe.
Man of Letters is the first installment of the Portland Chinatown Museum's new series of exhibitions celebrating the work of Portland Chinatown artists.
