(Nov. 25) ANCIENT CHINESE JADES AND BRONZES And if you have a healthy appreciation for treasure, you're bound to enjoy Ancient Chinese Jades and Bronzes at Smithsonian's Freer Gallery of Art. After a decade of dormancy, Freer's trove of Chinese art returns to the limelight tomorrow and stays there for the foreseeable future. Four-thousand-year-old artifacts illustrate the expert craftsmanship of the Liangzhu culture.
