Sumi-e Artists to Host Special Exhibit

By The North American Post Staff

Puget Sound Sumi Artists (PSSA), a group of about 80 local sumi-e artists, will present a special exhibit to celebrate its 30th anniversary. “Ink Play: Celebrating the World of Sumi” will begin next Tuesday at Handforth Gallery in the Tacoma Public Library and highlight the artists’ wide variety of styles, from traditional to experimental, as well as their creative use of sumi in various techniques and forms.

PSSA was organized in Tacoma in 1986 to promote the understanding and appreciation of Asian brush and ink art. Fumiko Kimura, a cofounder of PSSA, will present merit awards at a  reception to be held on Oct. 8 from 1 – 4 p.m. Member artists will offer free demonstrations of sumi art, including painting, calligraphy, sumi/collage, haiga and other art forms.

The exhibit will run until Nov. 12. More information can be found at http://pugetsoundsumiassociation.org/pssa/.
