Mong-Lan's paintings and photographs have been exhibited for one year at the Capitol House in Washington D.C., for six months at the Dallas Museum of Art, the Museum of Fine Arts in Houston, in galleries in the San Francisco Bay Area, Houston, and in public exhibitions in New York City, Tokyo, Bali, Bangkok, Buenos Aires and Seoul.

In conjunction with the National Endowment for the Arts, she was the Dallas Museum of Fine Arts' inaugural Visual Artist and Poet in Residence. An exhibition of her paintings and photographs, "The World of Mong-Lan," ran from January 30-August 28, 2005.  She gave poetry readings, gallery talks and conducted workshops on art (drawing and painting) and writing / poetry at the Dallas Museum of Arts for the general public, at the Dallas Public Library, and creatively talented middle school and high school students in Dallas area arts magnet schools.

Mong-Lan's book, Force of the Heart: Tango, Art contains expressive brush drawings and paintings of tango dancers, using her the Japanese brush technique inspired by living in Japan. A long poem is interspersed, based on the passionate Argentine tango.

Mong-Lan once again brings us her tango art, full of sensuality, vigor and loveliness. Based in Buenos Aires, Mong-Lan shares with us her tango vision, a world of lines, flowing bodies in motion. A world of great heart, a blossoming love, and a vision all her own. Reminiscent of Picasso, Matisse, and the great artists of this century, Mong-Lan's pen and inks on paper are like performance pieces on the page, a moment captured. Floating, yet grounded in a ferocity of the mind along with Mong-Lan's impeccable technique of the hand and eye, the dancers tango in a centrifugal force of the heart.
