Ian Jehle "Here's to You"
This event has ended.
Ian Jehle presents "Here's to You," an exhibition of contemporary portrait drawings which trace the influences that led the artist to Japan. The exhibition begins with two large drawings of Donald Richie, the expatriate writer and film critic who has lived in Tokyo since 1953 and Susan Sontag, the counter-cultural essayist and novelist, which represent the public face of contemporary, cross-cultural art criticism. Upstairs, on the second floor the exhibit moves to smaller, more personal drawings of pivotal figures such as actress Setsuko Hara, singer Mika Kimula, as well as the artist's teachers and friends who led him to the work of Richie and Sontag, as well as to Japan. Mr. Jehle has also created a hand drawn guide book that gives short biographies of those portrayed and how each has taken an important role that led the artist to this exhibit in Tokyo.
Opening Reception: November 8th (Thurs), 19:00-21:00
