The Ancient and Modern Colours of Japan

The Ancient and Modern Colours of Japan

The Ancient and Modern Colours of Japan is an exhibition which will run in the Gallery between 20 April and 12 May 2017. The exhibited works and artists are drawn both from here in the United Kingdom and also from Japan and each is inspired and influenced by Japanese culture and tradition. The arts and crafts celebrate both the ancient and the modern from Japan and include calligraphy, indigo dyed paper collage, hand weaving, indigo dyed tapestry, etchings, paintings and origami as an art form. To celebrate Japan and this rich display of work at KEVICC we have also planned cultural days of workshops on the 19 April and on the 3 and 4 May 2017 and these will include indigo dyeing, bengala dyeing, traditional scented sachet with kimono & obi fabrics making, calligraphy & seal engraving, sushi making, origami techniques, Japanese dancing, Japanese songs workshops but also kimono wearing and tea ceremony demonstrations. 
Our evening event in the gallery and also in our dance studio/theatre on 3 May from 5.00 - 8.00 pm will showcase the art work, Japanese dance and music and of course work which the students have created in their workshops. Sushi refreshments will be served.
