Chizuko Yoshida and Her Peers: Women Printmakers in Japan
1219 Southwest Park Avenue
Portland, OR 97205
The granddaughter and daughter of women artists, Ayomi Yoshida will introduce us to the extraordinary life and career of her mother, Chizuko Yoshida (born 1924). One of the most innovative print artists working in Japan during the second half of the 20th century, Chizuko Yoshida constantly experimented with new forms and ideas, embracing abstraction, surrealism, and naturalism. Co-founder of the Women’s Print Association, she exhibited regularly in Japan and in the United States, but has yet to receive the critical attention she deserves.
Presented in conjunction with the exhibition Breaking Barriers: Japanese Women Print Artists 1950–2000. Sponsored by the Asian Art Council.
