In Atlanta, Sukey Hughes and the World of Japanese Paper: A Return to the Source, opens at The Robert C. Williams Paper Museum on Thursday, October 15th. As a young American writer traveling throughout Japan in 1969, Hughes became enamoured with the ancient art of hand papermaking ("washi") . This interest led to years of study and in the late 70s she published Washi: The World of Japanese Paper. Recently Hughes donated to the Williams her personal collection of original images that document the craft. The new show will highlight these along with related artifacts from the museum's permanent collection. On view through January 29, 2010. (Loosely related past post: Dominoterie.)
Also, Martha just posted pictures from her recent employee art exhibition. Shown above is Jodi Levine's untitled work photographed by Ron Palacio.
