Sculptor Feng Jin shows his sons Felix, 10, and Irwin, 6, his signature on a piece of his sculpture while his wife, Lauren Huang looks on. Jin's work will be on display at the Alameda Museum, 2324 Alameda Ave. through Wednesday, March 30. Meet Jin at an artist's reception from noon to 4 p.m. this Saturday, March 12. The exhibition features Jin's metal sculpture, which uses doors not only as backgrounds but as entryways to introduce a new form of Chinese calligraphy. "A door not only represents in versus out, or open versus closed, but also an entry to a new way," Jin said. Of Korean descent, Jin graduated from the Central Academy of Fine Art in Beijing. He came to the United States in 1995.

He lives in Alameda, where he works as a full-time sculptor.
