January 13 -February 14, 2020
Reception January 16
Mayumi Amada’s Japanese cultural heritage is interwoven to the work she creates. Reflecting on it from the United states, she explores how reusable materials and recycling echo concepts from Buddhism and Zen philosophies. The idea of “reuse” and “recycling” contains the meaning of “rebirth” and “giving new life”. Her artwork is focused on a circle of life and eternity in mortality. Through repeated stitches and patterns, Mayumi explores the repetition of generations using traditional techniques and their iconography handed down through lace-work and dollies.
Please join us on January 16, 2020 for a lecture at 2:00pm and a reception to follow at 4:30 - 6:30pm. The exhibition, lecture, and recepiton are free and open to the public.
