on view Nov. 19 – Dec. 20
Dublin Arts Council gallery, 7125 Riverside Dr., Dublin
opening reception, Tuesday, Nov 19, 6 – 8 p.m.
The 2013 Visual Arts Series draws to a close with a solo exhibition of Japanese ceramics by Masayuki Miyajima. Miyajima will exhibit elegant, functional, handcrafted pottery that is steeped in the Mingei folk art tradition; emphasizing the value and inherent beauty of ordinary useful items that are devoid of artistic pretense.
Miyajima will travel to Dublin from the town of Motegi, Tochigi Prefecture, Japan. His studio and kiln are situated just outside of Mashiko, where for more than 20 years Miyajima has explored shape and material to produce pottery imbued with a combination of body, mind and spirit. The whole of the object is important, as is its functionality.
Miyajima’s pottery has proven itself extremely popular with patrons, selling out during his previous visit in 2010.
Infinite Possibilities will be on view in the Dublin Arts Council gallery, 7125 Riverside Dr., in Dublin from Nov. 19 through Dec. 20, 2013. The exhibition opens with a reception with the artists at Dublin Arts Council on Nov. 19 from 6 to 8 p.m. The exhibition and opening reception are free of charge. Exhibition hours: Tuesday 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.; Wednesday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.; and Saturday 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
