Upcoming 2015 B & A Show

     The annual B & A Show in Tokyo is going to start on Dec 1st.  The theme for this year's show is "Peace Maker." This is a group show commemorating the 70th anniversary since the end of WWII.  This show is also celebrating the 20th anniversary of B & A ministries.  58 artists are participating in this show.



      A couple of pieces by Kathe Kollwitz, a German artist who went through hardship during the two world wars, are going to be exhibited, too.

 今回は2つの世界大戦の時代に生きたドイツのアーティスト, ケーテ・コルヴィッツの2つの作品も展示されます。

      I have been participating in this show for four consecutive years now.  I am not be able to attend this year but I sent my work by mail.  Thanks to the help by other members of the group, the work is going to be installed.  The title of the work is "Bloom" and it expresses my wish for world peace.  It has pretty much the same concept as the work that I entered to this group show last year, but this one is an interactive installation.  Here are the planned images of the work.  If you are in Tokyo area, hope you can check it out and add thread pieces to it.

Upcoming Show - A Time to Sojourn

There is going to be another show for this year.  I appreciate being invited to Gallery XII, a cooperative galley in the heart of downtown Wichita, for their once a year guest featured artist show. The show will be up there for two months.  Gallery XII is Wichita's first cooperative gallery.  It's been operating since 1977!  It is a precious gallery for the people in Wichita. Here is the postcard image that they created for the show.
