In our inaugural fall exhibition, Redefining the Multiple, 13 Japanese artists interpret printmaking in a wide range of methods. The exhibition features digital technology in three-dimensional modeling and image projection, as well as more traditional methods of printmaking. Some works engage the tradition of the framed artist’s print; others have a more experimental presentation. Several pieces are installed on the floor, or cascade the wall of the gallery. Artists include Junji Amano, Shunsuke Kano, Hideki Kimura, Koichi Kiyono, Saori Miyake, Shoji Miyamoto, Arata Nojima, Nobuaki Onishi, Kouseki Ono, Naruki Oshima, Chiaki Shuji, Marie Yoshiki, and Toshinao Yoshioka. Redefining the Multiple opens August 28, with a reception the following Thursday evening, September 4, from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. in the Sarah Moody Gallery of Art at The University of Alabama. The exhibit remains on view through September 26 and is organized by the Ewing Gallery of Art and Architecture, University of Tennessee, Knoxville.
