The 2017 Yantai Folk Arts and Crafts Expo kicked off on Sept 22 at the international expo center in Yantai, Shandong province.
The expo, with the theme of "inheritance, communication, cooperation, development and innovation", aimed to make folk art originated from the people to benefit the people.
Modern folk arts and crafts of all categories were on display from 26 Chinese cities and provinces as well as seven countries and regions.
The exhibition space has been divided into three sections for statues and porcelain, traditional crafts and furniture, and Shandong paper-cuttings.
During the expo, which runs through Sept 25, the winners of the 13th China Folk Art "Mountain Flowers" Awards will be announced. The award is a national honor initiated by the China Federation of Literary and Art Circles and Chinese Folk Literature and Art Association.
As the Mid-Autumn Festival is just around the corner, the organizers have designated an area in the expo center for visitors to bargain for fine works of art.
A total of over one hundred folk artists participated in the expo.
