Asian art show by browngrotta

Wilton’s browngrotta arts will curate an art exhibition on display at the Bendheim Gallery in Greenwich from Sept. 16 through Nov. 4.

Contemporary Art Influenced by Korea and Japan: An Unexpected Approach includes select works of ceramics, textiles, baskets and sculptures by artists from Japan, Korea and the United States that each reflect an Asian sensibility.

According to a press release, the 23 artists, including Jiro Yonezawa, Naomi Kobayashi, Nancy Moore Bess and Jin-Sook So, “have a close relationship to a traditional, culturally associated craft aesthetic, manifested in a contemporary manner.”  The conventionally Asian materials and techniques — dyes, papers, gold leaf, persimmon tannin, kategami — are used in both time-honored and unconventional ways.

The Bendheim Gallery is at the Greenwich Arts Council, 299 Greenwich Avenue, Greenwich.
