Tom Nakashima will present a virtual artist talk and studio tour on January 28, which is associated with the exhibition, "Shadows from the Past: Sansei Artists and the American Concentration Camps," open online at http://gallery.deltacollege.ed... on January 21 (ongoing).
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.
Tom Nakashima will take us on a virtual walking tour through his awesome art studio in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia where we will view his paintings, drawings, and prints. Tom will discuss the contextual themes of his iconic images of sanctuary, cage, and portrait and how they relate to the general theme of incarceration.
