Earlier this year, the Japan Institute of Portland Japanese Garden announced that the internationally-acclaimed Sasaki had been selected as the organization’s very first artist-inresidence. Over two separate journeys east from her homebase of Kanazawa, Japan, Sasaki will be collecting Portland Japanese Garden’s plant life for a 2023 exhibition – Subtle Intimacy: Here and There on show from March 18 – June 12, 2023.
Portland Japanese Garden is delighted to share that its final art exhibition of 2022, Garden of Resonance, will feature the work of internationally acclaimed artist Jun Kaneko (b. 1942). Kaneko, winner of the prestigious Lifetime Achievement Award from the International Sculpture Center, has made major contributions to the field of sculptural art on a global scale, exploring the relationships between art, nature, and people with their bold scale and placement.
