The Chinese New Year of 2018 – Year of the Dog – falls on February 16th (Friday), and the festival will last to March 2nd, about 15 days in total. The year of the dog is special because it symbolizes loyalty, honesty and above all trust. In honor of Chinese New Year, HREI is thrilled to host Photo Beijing in our Gallery presented by Beth rich Brown, Blackwell Gallery Manager/Curator
