Walls — A Site-Specific Installation
Embroidery and mold are part of the domestic realm, but occupy the polar opposites of the beautiful and the abject. Both inhabit surfaces inside of the home, one embellishing and the other disintegrating. Walls is a site-specific installation comprised of hundreds of miniature cut paper forms in the shape of irregular mold forms that are pinned to the walls of the gallery to form the fingers and billows of natural mold growth; a series of five large hand-printed Japanese woodblock prints whose patterns are based on a group of the same shapes as the cut paper mold forms, explore domestic patterning and decoration and the natural properties of growth and decay. Opening reception with the artists, July 7, 6-9pm. On display July 7 through August 27, 2011.

Organized by artist Etsuko Ichikawa, the Sunflower Project encourages the growing of sunflowers. The seeds can be harvested and then sent to Japan. Sunflowers are known to have the ability to absorb radioactive cesium from the soil and neutralize its effects. The extracted oil also can be converted to biodiesel fuel. There is a growing movement to encourage the growing of sunflowers in the devastated areas of Northern Japan.
