Shin Jidai Opens This Week in Minneapolis

My woodblock print American Bible Story was juried in to "Shin Jidai: Contemporary Japanese Book and Paper Arts," an exhibition that opens this week at Minnesota Center for Book Arts. The show includes works from over 50 artists and highlights traditional Japanese arts such as moku hanga, origami, kiri-e (paper cutting), and more.

The exhibition kicks off with the Harukaze Festival of Japanese Book and Paper Arts, a day of demonstrations and activities on Saturday May 19 from 10:00-4:00.

Congratulations, Annie.
Your work looked wonderful on the wall in the Shin Jidai exhibition.

Did you know that they ran an almost half page photo of the print in City Pages magazine (free weekly arts and entertainment paper)?

If you'd like a copy, I saved one for you.

Keep up the great work.

Thanks for letting me know, Preston! I'm thrilled. Yes, I'd love a copy. I'll see if I can dig up your email address & will send you my snail mail details.

Hi Annie - Saw your piece last week - wonderful! Eva P. was in town on her way to Seattle and we visited the show together. It was great to see one of your prints in real life!
