Mongolian Performance Masks created by Gankhuyag Natsag
On Exhibit at Central Library, June 2013
Artist Gankhuyag Natsag (Ganna) was born in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia. Following in the footsteps of his parent, who are famous masters of handcrafts in the traditional Mongolian style, Ganna earned acclaim in Mongolia as a painter and papier-maché artist creating objects for traditional Performing Art troupes in Mongolia.
Today he shares his talents with Arlington, which is home to one of the largest Mongolian communities in the nation.
This exhibit is generously supported by a Spotlight Grant (Individual Artist Grant) awarded by the Arlington Arts Commission and Arlington Cultural Affairs.

I was awestruck by the beauty and quality of workmanship of these masks. I had just come into the library to pick up my holds, yet I had to stay and linger much longer than I expected, This exhibit is glorious! Is there going to be a performance? I want to see that.
