Twelve contemporary artists show their work which, according to Gail Enns, curator of the month-long exhibition, "transcends the ancient East-West divide and expresses a vision of spirituality and sacredness of everday things." Through ceramics, photographs, sculpture and paintings, the artists show how Japanese culture has influenced Western thinking and contemporary art. Sponsored by Sand City, the Sand City Arts Committee, the Orosco Group and the Japanese American Citizens League, the exhibition includes three related events during the month - a ceramics workshop, a Day of Japanese American remembrance and a sake and food tasting.
