All Day
This exhibition showcases prints and explores the career of Japanese artist Utagawa Hiroshige—considered one of the great masters of woodblock printmaking. The exhibition will feature all the prints in Hiroshige’s seminal “Fifty-Three Stations of the Tokaido Road” series. The series was published in 1834 and established Hiroshige’s reputation as the foremost artist of the topographical landscape. In this collection of woodblock prints, Hiroshige, who is influential to artists in Japan and in the West, documented his pilgrimage along the “Eastern Road” that linked Edo (now Tokyo) with Kyoto—the ancient imperial capital of Japan. Along the Eastern Road: Hiroshige’s Fifty-Three Stations of the Tokaido is organized by the Reading Public Museum, Reading, Pennsylvania. Partial funding is provided by the Friends of the Luther W. Brady Art Gallery and the Frances K. and Leonard W. Burka Fund for the Arts. The exhibition is free and open to the public. Wednesday, August 24, 2016 - Friday, December 2, 2016 Gallery Hours: Tuesday - Friday, 10:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. For more information: Image: Utagawa Hiroshige (Japanese, 1797 - 1858), 16th Station: Yui, circa 1833-4 from Fifty-Three Stations of the Tokaido Road (detail), woodblock print, courtesy of Reading Public Museum, Reading, Pennsylvania.
Using natural materials, namely wood, wax, and rope, Tazuko Ichikawa's sculptures strive to express balance, harmony, and the inner rhythm of her work. Ichikawa's work is meditative, to the viewer and to herself. She writes "Trying to reach the essence of being, my forms are minimal and reduced to essentials whose space allows the mind to expand freely. Yet the simpler the composition, the more time is spent until I succeed in liberating myself from my consciousness."
