About the event

Inventive Brush: Calligraphic Echoes from China, Japan, and Korea curated by Professor Aida Wong showcases the diversity of contemporary calligraphy, it featured the works of three Massachusetts-based artists, Mike Yuguo Mei, Michiko Imai, and YoungSun Jang.

Calligraphy has long been a revered art form in East Asian traditions and remains an integral part of East Asian and East Asian diaspora cultures. Each of the featured calligraphers are masters in their own artforms and have blended their classical training with innovation to create their own unique artistic styles. By presenting these works in a unified setting, audiences can explore the works as more than words and characters but as contemporary interpretations beyond the respective countries of the artists.

The Inventive Brush: Calligraphic Echoes from China, Japan, and Korea is a collaboration between the Pao Arts Center, the Japan Society of Boston, and the Korean Cultural Society of Boston.

Join us on Friday, July 19 at 6:00 PM for an opening reception featuring an artist discussion moderated by the exhibit curator. This event is free and open to the public, registration is required.
