DESCRIPTION

L.A. Artcore is pleased to present the 7th International Exchange Show between Japan and the United States at the L.A. Artcore Brewery Annex from August 22nd through August 29th.

Artists from Japan: Hitomi Murai, Kumiko Kuroda, Kakuko Ishii, Mitsuru Kuroki, Koji Ishikawa, Shinjo Yoshihiro, Yoshio Ikezaki, Kazunobu Yanagi, Kazuyoshi Morita, You Tameyori, Masayuki Isa, Nobuyoshi Kano, Yuji Shinomiya

United States artists: Joseph Piasentin, Jeff Nemeroff, Suthat Pinruethai, Lore Eckelberry, Marla Fields, Mark Griffin, Suguru Hiraide, Sherri Martin, Stephen Robert Johns, Edem Elesh

A successful confluence between noted artists from Japan and the United States intensifies with its seventh exhibition, bringing a rich array of visual work from painters, photographers, video artists and sculptors.  With such variety and technique, it is impossible to view this show without encountering something truly eye-catching.

The International Exchange Show provides artists with the opportunity to visit and showcase their work in other countries.  As an act of mutual benefit, the show stimulates exposure, fellowship and career advancement.  Some of the Japanese artists in this show will continue to an exhibition entitled Zentica at Museo de Arte Costarricense in San Jose, Costa Rica in September, and will also be presented together with their international counterparts in the exchange at the Fukuoka Asian Art Museum in Fukuoka, Japan later this year.
