The Cecille R. Hunt Gallery presents “Exchange: Prints from Nagoya Japan.” This international exhibition brings together a group of artists exploring contemporary Japanese printmaking and denotes a unique blend of refined traditional methods, emerging techniques and new technology. The artists represented in this exhibition include work by internationally recognized artists: Terou Isomi and Seiichiro Miida, as well as prints by emerging artists. While grounded in a clear Japanese aesthetic, the work in this exhibition pushes the boundaries of printmaking using radical techniques, to create dynamic compositions and complex layers that also incorporate visual concepts that are crisply contemporary. The works in this exhibition also represent the foundation of an exchange between the Department of Art at Webster University and the Department of Art at Aichi University in Nagoya Japan.
