Current & Upcoming Exhibits
The Japanese phrase, Ichigo Ichie, has been translated as "for this time only," and "once in a lifetime." It is a phrase describing to treasure the moment and for Kathleen, expresses something she thinks about often in relationship to her art making. She is grateful for this opportunity to share her first experience of Kyoto and recall those moments again in the process.
Emerging artist Yoichi Nakama from Kyoto, Japan will be the next exhibitor at JFG's Exhibit Hall. During his painting process, Nakama employs elements of abstraction and moves away from objective representations. Nakama chooses to express his feeling about the beauty of nature, the phenomenon of light, and atmospheric changes as it occurs within Kyoto - during the process, the canvas itself is transformed into an object of nature.
