Made In India


Another exhibition by the very busy printmakers Tomoyo Ihaya and Taiga Chiba is opening this week at Dundarave Print Work Shop Gallery,1640 Johnston Street, Granville Island, Vancouver, BC. The exhibition is on from March 17 to April 9, 2006, with the opening on March 18th 5-7pm. The gallery is open Friday, Saturday and Sunday or by appointment at 604-689-1650.

Tomoyo and Taiga were in India this past winter, attending artist’s residencies and workshops, making prints and travelling. They are now back in Vancouver making more prints and teaching at Dundarave Print Workshop. This is their exhibition of works inpired by India.

Tomoyo says she will be donating her sales to Ladakh Childrens Home Society, to help the children with free education in the remote area of Ladakh, India. She would like to do that since all images are connected with her experience in Ladakh in 2006.

These prolific artists have graced these pages many times. New readers may be interested in earlier posts about Tomoyo Ihaya’s other shows: Fountain, Searching for Agua and Recent Works.

And Taiga Chiba’s ‘Tis the Season and Duet.
