Japanese Prints Exhibit Ends Saturday
Redefining the Multiple: 13 Japanese Printmakers, an exhibit at the University of Wyoming Art Museum, is going to be wrapping up this week, but you still have a chance to see it.
The exhibition will be officially closing on Saturday May18th, this according to an official announcement sent out by the University of Wyoming.
“The exhibition features the work of Japanese artists whose formal training is in printmaking,” says Rachel Miller, assistant curator, in a UW press release. “Although each of the participating artists' personal work has transitioned over the years -- and some is now more associated with other media -- printmaking and the production of multiples remains at the core of their creative processes.”
Artists included in the exhibition are Junji Amano, Shunsuke Kano, Hideki Kumura, Kiochi Kiyono, Saori Miyake, Shoji Miyamoto, Arata Nojima, Nobuaki Onishi, Kuseki Ono, Naruki Oshima, Chiaki Shuji, Marie Yoshik, and Toshinao Yoshioka. Four of the artists make three-dimensional objects and installations; two paint with printmaking tools and techniques; three use digital photography and technology; and the others use traditional and recognizable printmaking techniques.
The museum is located in the Centennial Complex at 2111 Willett Drive in Laramie. Hours are Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m.–5 p.m. Admission is free.
