Printmaker Yoshiko Shimano brings her exhibit to Tennessee Tech University’s Joan Derryberry Art Gallery March 17 through April 3.
Shimano is inspired by vanity, uncertainty, fragility, sadness and times of human weakness. Her work and collaboration projects try to connect with these moments to express the beauty of being a human.
An associate professor of printmaking at the University of New Mexico, Shimano’s work has been exhibited in Japan, Canada and the United States.
Following the idea that an artist should step out of the studio, Shimano offers many local and international outreach projects to her students through the department of art history at UNM.
A reception will be held at 4:30 p.m. April 3 in the gallery.
Shimano’s exhibit is sponsored by TTU’s Center Stage, which is made possible by the university’s general education fund. The exhibit is free and open to the public.
The Derryberry Art Gallery is on the first floor of TTU’s Roaden University Center, 1000 N. Dixie Ave.
