Lydia Nakashima Degarrod will present a virtual artist talk associated with the exhibition, "Shadows from the Past: Sansei Artists and the American Concentration Camps," open online at http://gallery.deltacollege.ed... January 21 (ongoing).
Lydia Nakashima Degarrod will discuss the process of paper making used in her work. We will see how she merges the fibers from the herb yerba, known for its healing qualities in Latin America, and mulberry fibers used in Japan for traditional paper-making. She will also demonstrate the process of photographic transfer.
The exhibition, curated by Gail Enns of Celadon Arts, presents the work of eight nationally recognized Sansei artists whose work reflect their mutual Japanese American history and the racial injustice of their families’ incarceration during WWII in the American Concentration Camps. The term Sansei (“third generation”) is a Japanese word used in parts of the world such as South America and North American to specify the grandchildren, or third generation, of Japanese origin in that country. The Sansei are now the last generation to have heard the stories of those incarcerated first-hand.
