This spring, we are featuring renowned calligraphy artist, Shoko Kanazawa. Born with Down syndrome, Kanazawa began studying calligraphy at the age of five to become one of Japan’s most acclaimed contemporary calligraphers.

Although neither the artist nor her works were able to travel from Japan to Portland, we have put together a display of her works and videos of Ms. Kanazawa creating her art.

ENJOY THE BRUSH OF SHOKO KANAZAWA
