Koichi Kiyono, Cultivation II (small version), Etching on Cotton-Wool and Felt, Wall and floor installation (detail). studies Carlos M. Herrera, the exhibition continues through May 11 at the Museum of Fine Arts, 102 S. Columbia St., Milledgeville. Gallery hours at 11 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Tuesdays and Thursdays and by appointment.

The exhibition unites 13 Japanese printmakers who bring the techniques and concepts of printmaking to a wide range of contemporary and traditional media: four artists make three-dimensional objects and installations; two paint with printmaking tools and techniques; three use digital photography and technology; and others utilize traditional and recognizable printmaking methods.

Each of the participating artists will exhibit two to five works, resulting in a diverse selection of objects and images from the hands of an equally diverse group of artists, including men and women of various ages from their mid-20s to mid-60s. The artists reside and work in different regions throughout Japan, and the visual content of their work ranges from formal abstraction to iterations of traditional Japanese cultural images.

This exhibition is curated by Sam Yates, gallery director of Ewing Gallery of Art and Agriculture at University of Tennessee Knoxville, and art professor Hideki Kimura, an art professor at Kyoto City University of Art.

A reception will be held from 4 to 6 p.m. Wednesday, April 25 at the gallery with curator Same Yates speaking at 5 p.m.

The exhibition is free and open to the public and is co-sponsored by Arts Unlimited.
