Woodblock print series coming to UO museum

An exhibit of woodblock prints by 20th century Japanese artist Sekino Jun'ichiro opens Saturday and runs through July 20 at White Lotus Gallery, 767 Willamette St.

Sekino (1914-1988) was known for making images of traditional Japan using a modernist formal vocabulary and color sense.

In the 1960s, he taught woodblock printing techniques at the University of Washington, Oregon State University and the University of Oregon.

At that time, he began work on his monumental series "Fifty-three Stations of the Tokaido," a project that would continue for more than 15 years.

That series has been exhibited at the UO's Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art. In 1975, it brought Sekino the Ministry of Education Award from the Japanese government.

Sekino's works are in the collections of the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Museum of Fine Art in Boston, the British Museum and the Portland Art Museum.

The White Lotus exhibit consists of prints from the "Fifty-three Stations of the Tokaido," his series from the 1980s "Oku no Hosomichi (Narrow Road to the Interior)" as well as portraits and landscapes.

Gallery hours are from 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday.

New York artist has retrospective show

"Light Journey: An Odyssey in Paint," a retrospective exhibition of New York artist Su Kwak, is open through July 28 at the Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art, 1430 Johnson Lane on the University of Oregon campus.

A reception will be held from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Friday at the museum, which is also opening "Living Legacies," an exhibit of works from Eugene area private collections.

"Light Journey" was organized by the Brauer Museum of Art at Valparaiso University and curated by Jungsil Lee. It will be presented in the museum's Focus Gallery.

Kwak will lead an artist's talk at 2 p.m. Saturday.

The exhibition brings together 31 pieces of work that affirm the artist's distinctive use of light and color to capture her spiritual life.

Kwak's sculptural canvases visually equate the light that gives definition to objects with an inner light that gives purpose and meaning, according to information about the exhibit.

"Viewers find that they can feel Kwak's paintings as much as see them with their eyes; surfaces appeal to the sense of touch with their folds, tears, gestures and textures," says Gregg Hertzlieb, Brauer Museum of Art director and exhibition curator, in the foreword of the exhibition catalog. …
