About Nihonga
In the narrowest definition, Nihonga is a particular painting style that utilizes Japanese pigments and binder with traditional tools and techniques. Nihonga requires labor-intensive procedures, however, the artists in this exhibit value the manual process. They say, "The manual labor itself works as a form of meditation for us to retrieve our humanity, which is often forgotten in today’s busy modern society." We hope you will enjoy Nihonga’s color sensitivity in this exhibition.
The Opening Reception and Artist’s Presentation
During the opening reception, the artist will make a brief presentation to explain more about Nihonga, their process, their influences, and answer questions from the audience. Light snacks and refreshments will be served.
