Artist's Reception: Friday, July 28, 5-7 PM
Artist Talk & Demonstration: Saturday, July 29, 2-3:30 PM
Join Japanese bamboo artist Tanaka Kyokusho this weekend as the gallery celebrates his current solo exhibition. A reception for the artist will be held this evening, followed by a demonstration of bamboo technique and lecture on process by Tanaka tomorrow afternoon.
As one of the most well-respected creators of bamboo art alive today, Tanaka holds himself to a high standard of process and vision and takes the time before each piece to compose and experiment with shape, colors, and the widths and spacings of the bamboo strips. This leads to a series of drafts, executed through technical sketches and physical samples to evaluate the aesthetic outcomes of these variables.
