Chun Yan's work included drawings as well as landscapes in pastel and oils.
This blurry photo (sorry) shows her friends and children.
The Noyes Museum is located on a scenic lake near Stockton College.
The crowds were amazing and all were buying.
My sister purchased this painting , Chun Yan oldest son (10 yrs.) told us his mom painted this in college. She won a prestigious award for it in China.
I purchased this: It is a painting of a house we own, and spent about 25 summers in. Its on the Bay in Somers point N.J. I could not believe she painted it, how could I not buy it.
Her oldest son choose this painting to keep. He said they vacationed there in Main and his Mom was happy painting.
Last evening I attended an Art Show honoring the life of Chun Yan Hilyard. Chun Yan was a victim of domestic violence, and leaves behind three young sons. The Noyes Museum in Egg Harbor Township N.J. along with friends of Chun Yan hosted a sale of more than 200 pieces of her work. The money raised will benefit her sons. Chun Yan Hilyard was formally trained in China from an early age. She has quickly become one of the premier impressionistic landscape artist in our area. I was so impressed by the massive turnout to honor this woman and saddened at our loss of such a phenomenal artist and teacher. Thanks to Chun Yan friends and the Noyes Museum, her sons will have a lasting memory of how important and loved their Mother was. It truly was a wonderful night. The boys will be moving to South Africa to live with their Grandparents.
