This is the first show in the world focusing on bamboo basketry and sculpture by women. These artists have put together an impressive group of artworks showing the importance of women to the future of an art form traditionally dominated by men. Kajiwara Aya, Tanabe Mitsuko, Tanioka Aiko, Isohi Setsuko, and Oki Toshie all have created stunning new pieces for the show. Three of the artists, Tanabe, Isohi, and Oki, will be at the opening from 5-7pm.
