Cultivating  Nature:  The Art of the Garden

Inspired by the season, this show will celebrate the floral profusion of spring and the ways in which we engage with nature in the art of the garden. This show will include contemporary Chinese scroll paintings of wisteria and chrysanthemums by Su Xuan, Zhang Jian-Yang, Sun Hong-Wen; modern Japanese woodblock prints depicting Zen gardens and stone lanterns by Okiie Hashimoto; ethereal works of butterflies by Chizuko Yoshida; a Japanese temple entrance by Kiyoshi Saito; mezzotints of moonlit trees by Katsunori Hamanishi; early 20th century botanical works by Shodo Kawarazaki; new lino-cut reduction prints inspired by nature but drawn from the imagination by Connie Mueller and sculpture made of copper and redwood by Dale Mueller.
