Kellogg Gallery December 9, 2014-January 2, 2015

Opening Reception Thursday, December 11th, 5-7pm

Works by members of the Sarasota Sumi-e Society.
The art of Sumi-e is a dynamic balance, creating paintings made of black ink, but often giving the impression of having color through skillful manipulation of values. In later years, color was introduced and used by many artists. The use of white or blank space for balance is known as Wu-Wei, the fullness of the empty, achieved through the principle of balance. See all the space, not just painted space as being worthy of our attention. When you think of empty space as being full of potential, that may be the secret to success in painting, as it is in life.

The Sarasota Chapter is a member of the Sumi-e Society of America, Inc. Membership includes painters and non painters, professional artists, calligraphers, teachers and students. In Sarasota, emphasis is on education and sharing through monthly meetings, newsletters, workshops and exhibitions.
