COLOR HARMONY: At left, Keiji Shinohara, visiting artist in Art and East Asian Studies, poses near samples of his printmaking on display in the Davison Art Center gallery. At right, Bill Johnston, chair of the History Department and professor of history, Science in Society and East Asian Studies, looks on. Shinohara spoke about his work, collectively titled "Color Harmony" during an opening and reception Sept. 6.

Wesleyan students examine Shinohara's prints up close. Shinohara studied traditional Ukiyo-e techniques in Kyoto, Japan and is a Master Printermaker of woodblock printing. He has taught printmaking and painting classes at Wesleyan since 1995.
This image, which is part of the show, is titled "Romanza." It is a color woodcut created from 14 separately-carved blocks and 18 water-based colors. This woodcut was commissioned in 2002 from the Montgomery Museum of Fine Arts.
Shinohara shares a laugh with former students during his reception.
"Color Harmony" is open to the public for viewing through Dec. 9 in the Davison Art Center Gallery. The gallery, located at 301 High Street, is open from noon to 4 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday. For more information go to http://www.wesleyan.edu/dac. (Photos by Olivia Bartlett)
