Art Gallery

The Art Gallery is a one thousand square foot space dedicated to showing the art of DVC students, regional and international artists. The gallery is the art department’s learning laboratory. It provides a crucial opportunity to apply principles taught in the classroom to a real-world context, allowing students to deepen their understanding of art theory and practice while gaining exposure to the professional world of art exhibition, curation, installation, and criticism. As a forum for the visual arts at DVC, the gallery’s mission is to inspire and educate the entire campus community about the vitality and importance of visual art.

Presenting: Art As Meditation

Artwork by Fumiyo Yoshikawa

The work of Fumio Yoshikawa 

A solo exhibition by artist Fumiyo Yoshikawa “Art as Meditation”

Featuring calligraphy, paintings, video and site-specific installations.

Fumiyo Yoshikawa’s exhibition at DVC focuses on the theme of “Tenchi Doukon”, the Zen teaching “everything in the earth and the universe is connected to the same root”. Comprised mostly of drawing and painting, Fumiyo uses Sumi-ink, Nihonga pigments/mineral colors, gold powder, mud, gamboji, coal, watercolor, and cinabor as drawing material on stones, rice paper, bamboo paper, Okawara paper, Shikishi and Mashi paper. The exhibition also includes calligraphy, a site specific installation and video.
As intended this exhibit is meant to be experienced in person (very closely). We are grateful to get the opportunity to experience a moment of meditation and beauty with this exhibit, especially meaningful during this time of change for so many. The exhibit runs through Nov 10th, in the new Art Complex, room 101.
