ArtXchange, “Coming in August: Mia Yoshihara-Bradshaw!,” August 2010.
Our featured North Gallery artist for August is Mia Yoshihara-Bradshaw. Mia offers intricate cut-paper artwork, accordion books, cards, stationary and pens usingwashi paper (elegant printed patterns inspired by the ornate kimono designs from the Edo period of Japanese history). Her imagery ranges from classical shapes such as kimono, cranes and koi to contemporary icons like playful lucky cats. She combines washi papers with fabric, ribbon, and other mixed-media to create a striking blend of pattern, color and texture. These decorative small works offer colorful additions to the office, home and lovely gifts for everyday use.
Meet Mia during the First Thursday Artwalk, August 5, from 5-8pm or during the First Thursday Artwalk, September 2, 5-8pm!
