This exhibit is a unique opportunity for you to see and own the work of a Master Japanese calligrapher, right here on the North Shore. Michiko will be at the opening reception to speak to visitors and talk about her work and process, and I hope you take the opportunity to meet Michiko and make the most of the opportunity to learn more about this traditional art form.
Michiko holds the highest rank in Japanese calligraphy of Shihan. Her work has been displayed at the Tokyo Metropolitan Art Museum, Osaka Municipal Museum of Art, Nara City Museum of Art, and Kyoto Municipal Museum of Art.
Michiko has also been a studio artist at TLGUTS during her stays in the United States for nearly the past two years. She also holds guild certification to teach calligraphy and teach others to teach calligraphy. Michiko will run classes in the gallery on Monday afternoons, and is currently accepting new students, and will work with students at any skill level level from new to novice to advanced.
I am very excited for Michiko's exhibit, and hope you all come out to meet her. The exhibit will run through the month of April.
Check back soon for more about Michiko's work and upcoming gallery events!
