Iwasawa Oriental Arts is presenting a digital publication on Japanese lacquered arts centered on the tradition of 写 utsushi and will be hosting an exhibition to celebrate the 30th Anniversary Celebration of its gallery on Nov. 1. The event begins at 5 p.m. and will take place at 75 University Ave. in Los Gatos, CA.

This project embodies the strong motivation to present the true nature of creativity within tradition, which is deeply embedded in Japanese culture. The digital publication will utilize the latest technology in digital media and serve as a vehicle to educate a wider audience on the importance and soul of utsushi. Learn more about this publication, which is a free educational resource available to the public

As part of the Gallery’s effort to celebrate their 30th Anniversary the gallery is taking a new direction in presenting traditional art and culture in a new way that appeals to all generations through iJaponesque  – a way of revealing the nature of creativity within tradition, the soul of Japanese aesthetics.
