Contemporary Japanese Printmakers Invitational 2017

June 1st - July 1st, 2017. 
First Thursday Opening Reception: June 1st, 6-8PM.

We were excited to welcome back printmakers, old and new, to our second Japanese printmaking invitational. This exhibition featured prints from over thirty emerging and established artists who are living and working in Japan. Many of the prints are no longer available, but we will do our best to inquire.
