Opening at Alternatives’ Heritage Gallery
The KIWA Exhibit (Kyoto International Woodprint Association) was held at the Kyoto Municipal Museum of Art in March, 2007. The exhibit displayed the woodblock prints of 222 artists representing 37 countries. For more information and photos about KIWA and its founder, RIchard Steiner, please visit: www.kiwa.net.
On my cutting table, I have this photo of my sensei, Tomikiichiro Tokuriki. Sensei is sitting where I remember him drawing and carving his blocks. The other photos show the outside of his atelier in Kyoto, some of his woodcuts on the studio walls, the printers work area, and my messy work area. I spent three mornings a week with him in 1974 and 1975. These photos are from slides taken during that time.
