Japanese calligraphy and paintings on view at The Hudgens
Presented in partnership with the Japan America Society of Georgia, Japanfest and the Japanese Consulate, this exhibition will be on view through September 27, 2014.

DULUTH, GA.- The Hudgens Center for the Arts in Duluth announces their newest exhibition, Hiroshima International: Japanese Calligraphy and Paintings, which is now on view. The exhibit features over 90 works on paper created by a group of artists from Hiroshima Japan. Presented in partnership with the Japan America Society of Georgia, Japanfest and the Japanese Consulate, this exhibition will be on view through September 27, 2014.

“The theme of this exhibition is painting brush culture shown through calligraphy and paintings. Hiroshima, which produces eighty percent of total Japanese brush production, is not only a place unique brushes are made, but is also a place that sends a message of peace to the world, something we take much pride in.” Says Keiichi Marutani, participating artist and Secretary General of the Artist Delegation from Hiroshima.

Also currently on view is Beyond Words: Calligraphic Work by the Atlanta Friends of the Alphabet. This exhibit features over 50 works on paper by local calligraphy artists. The Atlanta Friends of the Alphabet will also host an Illuminated Letters Program on Thursday, September 11th from 4:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. Illuminated Letters is a calligraphic performance event in which visitors can see artists at work in the fine art of lettering.

The Hudgens will host a closing reception and celebration for these exhibitions on Saturday, September 20th at 6:30 p.m. Many of the artists whose work is on display will be here from Japan for this event and will present live calligraphy performances during the reception. The event is free and open to the public.
