American Japonisme: A New Perspective

September 8 - 29, 2011

Opening Reception: Thursday, September 8, 2011, 5:00-7:00 p.m.

This exhibition critically examines the relationship between the Far East and West, revealing the implications this contact would have on the visual arts primarily during the years 1850-1930. Curated by graduate student Angela Lowther, the show offers a fresh look at the contributions of American artists, especially female printmakers Helen Hyde, Bertha Lum, and Bertha Jaques.
