into the fold exhibition - Philadelphia

PHILADELPHIA, PA -- Six international artists will showcase their new mokuhanga works at C.R. Ettinger Studio Gallery in Philadelphia, PA which opens on Friday, March 30 at 6-8 p.m. This exhibition titled, Into the Fold, is the result of an ongoing creative conversation where artists respond to themes of folding/unfolding, portability, lineage, and community using mokuhanga as the primary medium.

Artists Katie Baldwin (Huntsville, AL), Sarah Hulsey (Somerville, MA), Fuko Ito (Lawrence, KS), Mariko Jesse (Tokyo, Japan), Yoonmi Nam (Lawrence, KS), and Mia O (Tokyo, Japan) are connected through teaching and learning mokuhanga in the United States and in Japan. The term and the process of Mokuhanga (Japanese for woodblock printmaking) has been adopted by contemporary artists working with the tools and materials associated with traditional Japanese water-based woodblock printing. These artists, along with many contemporary artists working in mokuhanga, trace a lineage of learning to a handful of Japanese printers, carvers and artists connected through the Nagasawa Art Park and MI-LAB artist residencies located in Japan.
