|Friday Oct 21 3:00PM-4:30PM||The Art Gallery at the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa
Workshop on the lacquer arts and the lacquering process by lacquer artist SOMEYA Satoshi
SOMEYA Satoshi, described by Japan Times as “one of the most significant contemporary lacquer artists working in Japan today,” uses such unconventional materials as horns and bones, sand and stones, and leaves and branches to successfully challenge the limits of this traditional medium.
Some artists combine their mastery of the history and technical aspects of Japan’s rich pre-twentieth century art and craft traditions with the influences of anime, manga, and pop culture to propel those traditions toward new directions in the twenty-first century. Free admission.
