Kate T. Williamson: A Year in Japan
March 31 - April 11, 2014
Opening: Monday, March 31, 2014 from
6 to 8 p.m.
Williamson is particularly inspired by Japanese scroll paintings, especially the work of Sesshu (1420 - 1506), as well as by the various series of nineteen-century woodblock prints by Hiroshige (well known for The Fifty-three Stations of the Tokaido) and Hokusai (Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji). By depicting specific moments, Williamson aims to convey a larger sense of Japan and the beauty --both ornate and everyday-- that can be found everywhere. The perfect complement to the Cherry Blossom Festival, these works on paper, oil paintings, and matchbox dioramas present a multi-faceted look at Japan.
