Yesterday I traveled to Connecticut to visit the wonderful artist, and equally wonderful person, Lynita Shimizu. We spent the morning in Lynita's light-filled studio where she gave me a much needed lesson in matting and framing (thank you, Lynita!). Then, after a sushi break, we went to nearby University of Connecticut to see Lynita's huge one-person show. I'm here to tell you that a room full of 63 of Lynita's woodblock prints takes one's breath away. If you're anywhere near Storrs, CT, don't miss this show:
