Feb. 1 – July 9

Discover the beauty of antique posters and their role in advertising. Advertising long relied on handbills and posters, but improvements to lithographic printing in the 1880s meant publishers could inexpensively reproduce colorful artwork. The new artistic possibilities prompted an international poster craze and elevated graphic design to a fine art.

Magazines, a popular source of entertainment at the time, were among the many products advertised through posters. In this exhibit explore stunning American examples from a golden age of poster design from beloved magazines like Harper’s Monthly and bygone publications like Lippincott’s and The Century from a private local collection.”

Portland Japanese Garden presents
Shokunin: Five Kyoto Artisans Look to the Future

More info: japanesegarden.org

The word shokunin means “artisan,” a word that signifies a person who has achieved a high level of accomplishment and a deep commitment to carry on the legacy of a traditional craft. A shokunin who works in the 21st century is an artisan whose work shows respect for the traditions of fine craftsmanship that have been handed down for generations—the handmade tools, the time-honored techniques, the finest natural materials, and the patience and indomitable spirit needed to carry on a painstaking craft. Just as important is the understanding that the work of each Japanese artisan is an expression not only of an individual artisan, but a collaborative effort among the many who work to complete a single process. From the lumberjack, to the wood-turner, to the artisan who applies the final exquisite layer of lacquer—the work of the shokunin is the work of an entire community of fine craftsmen and women, each of whom plays a critical role in the creation of a finished vessel.
