Karen Sano "The Interaction"


The Japanese Friendship Garden welcomes Karen Sano and her selection of works of koi paintings and shino vessels. "The Interaction" portrays Sano's interest in koi, its beauty, grace, strength and curious personality. She is exploring to exemplify koi paintings in contemporary style using her unique personal artistic views. In this exhibition, Sano unites with her hand built stone wares. Sano's stone wares are coated with shino glaze. Shino Glaze is a generic term for a family of pottery glazes. They tend to range in color from milky white to orange, sometimes with charcoal grey spotting, known as "carbon trap", which is the trapping of carbon in the glaze during the firing process.

The two different mediums are balanced by each other and determine the underlying moods and appreciation of her subjects.

There will be an artist demonstration held on Saturday, November 5th.

A public reception will be held on November 10th from 4:30pm - 6:30pm. Entrance fee is $5.00.
