NIHON/WA: Japanese Heritage-Washington Artists Exhibition

Topic: General Activity
Date: Saturday, July 6, 2013
Time: 12:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m.
Location: White River Valley Museum (Transportation not provided.)

Art is a powerful teacher, a window into culture and cultural change. Modern art insists on few limits to personal identity and freedom of expression, but few artists leave heritage and memory completely behind when they go to the studio. NIHON/WA, on display at the White River Valley Museum in Auburn, invites viewers to experience a wide spectrum of work created by artists of Japanese heritage in the Puget Sound region and see how each has chosen to include or step beyond heritage and history in their own content and style. From the delicate cut paper work of Aki Sogabe, to the edginess of Ken Taya’s graphic world and the pioneering ceramics of Patti Warashina, this exhibit has a lot to express.

Admission: $1 children and seniors, $2 adults; tours: $2 children and seniors, $3 adults. Contact Erin Hash for tours at 253-288-1937 or ehash@auburnwa.gov.
