Cultural facilities boom in Gubei

A flower market with 16,000 square meters of space is now open in Gubei.








Flower trade, gardening and home decoration are three major businesses at the Gubei Floral World. The market is accessible from Hongbaoshi Road, Gubei Road and Golden Street.




The four-story market provides people around and flower lovers morning fair, wholesale and retail services. Shops selling aquatic animals are also available here.







Floor b1 is for flora wholesale and retail. Covering an area of 2,000 square meters, the entire floor will be full of fresh cut flowers from all around the world. 







Floor b2 is the parking lot. The market has 400 parking spaces in total. The first and second floor will feature designer studios. Some well-known figures in the industry have accepted the invitation to open their own studios here.




Steps away, an art gallery named after famous Chinese painter Cheng Shifa (1921-2007) is expected to open by the end of the year.



With its east end borders Yili Road S. and the north reaches the green space of Hongqiao Road, the planned art venue will occupy an area of 7,000 square meters.




As a memorial place dedicated to the artist and a new landmark of Changning, the gallery will be divided into three sections - Cheng Shifa’s lifetime, his masterpieces and the works of his students and colleagues.




Cheng originally rose to fame as an illustrator to works such as the short stories of Lu Xun (1881-1936), who is considered one of the 20th century’s best-known Chinese writers.




However, Cheng ultimately became better known for his traditional brush paintings of minority ethnic groups from Yunnan Province.




After the completion of the gallery, it will concentrate on the fine arts of Shanghai and with works throughout the country included to explore the spirit of the Chinese painting.
