Sat August 13, 一期一会:An Evening of Japanese Artistry

by Lynn Moyers on August 5, 2022

Immerse yourself in a beautifully fleeting evening of Japanese artistry at Portland Art Museum on Saturday August 13 from 6-8pm. Ichi-go ichi-e describes the cultural concept of treasuring the unrepeatable nature of a moment. Internationally recognized pottery artist Shozo Michikawa will come to the Portland Art Museum to demonstrate his unique and powerful process of forming clay.

In this program, Michikawa will have a conversation with Jeannie Kenmotsu, Ph.D. to discuss his artistic process. Dr. Kenmotsu is the Arlene and Harold Schnitzer Curator of Asian Art at the Portland Art Museum.  Following the conversation, Michikawa will make one of his signature vases while demonstrating his wheel throwing technique. Portland local ikebana instructor Nana Goto Bellerud will join the demonstration and make a special flower arrangement to display in the vase freshly made by Michikawa. This collaborative demonstration will be accompanied with the beautiful sound of traditional Japanese music instruments played by a Portland based duo, Takohachi Collab Project.
