Mayumi Amada brings her Japanese cultural roots forward through evolving traditional crafts into contemporary artworks. In her exhibition “Water Flows, Life Blooms,” her delicate use of materials arouses complex and personal relationships to conservation of water, reduction of waste, and generational stewardship of the environment. Amada uses traditionally innocuous crafts, such as crocheting, origami, and the recycling of materials to bring about quiet and profound existential meaning.
Wayne Potratz, Professor Emeritus and former chairman of the art department at the University of Minnesota, will speak with exhibiting artist, Mayumi Amada, about her artistic practice at 7:00 PM.
Date/Time: Thursday, October 7, 6:30-8:30 PM; conversation between Mayumi and Wayne begins at 7:00 PM.
*registration is required for the opening reception.
Exhibit continues through November 11, 2021.
