Current Exhibition

The Enchanting Art of Japan

March 12 - April 18, 2015

Montclair State University’s George Segal Gallery presents The Enchanting Art of Japan, curated by Director M. Teresa Lapid Rodriguez.  On view from March 12 – April 18, 2015, the exhibition explores three centuries of Japanese art, from the dynamic Japanese Edo period (1600 – 1868) through the 20th century.   On view are five Ukiyo-e style woodblock prints which depict everyday life scenes from the 19th and 20th centuries  in Japan, as well as two monochrome ink paintings on paper.  Often referred to as Bunjinga or Zen painting, these landscape paintings were usually accompanied by verse.  Also included will be a 20th century sculpture from the permanent collection of Montclair State University as well as several Katabori-Netsuke and Karakuri-Netsuke from the Helene Kosloski collection.
