An exhibition featuring 86 works by 25 contemporary female artists, ‘Soaring Voices’ celebrates the rich and innovative ceramic culture of Japan. It’s a demonstration of the transition in Japanese society toward individual women artists being recognized in a realm traditionally held by men. The ceramics provide contemporary interpretations of a traditional art form through a range of motifs that are inspired from the natural world, dance movements from Noh Theater, and kimono patterns of the Edo period. A social commentary is put forth, whether it is beauty defined or an exploration between East and West.

Events and exhibitions are free and open to the public unless stated otherwise. Visitor information
