The Friends of Taka Sumi-e art society will exhibit traditional Japanese-style brush paintings, called sumi-e, Sunday, February 17th from 1-4pm at Mission Trails Regional Park as part of the Mission Trails Regional Park concert series featuring the Japanese bamboo flute.
The concert features the soothing and haunting sounds of the shakuhachi, or Japanese bamboo flute, played by Mary Lu Brandwein. The sound of the flute, used by Zen monks for meditation as well as music, lends itself to inner reflection and peace, according to Brandwein. Traditional and more contemporary pieces will be experienced. The concert will be performed at 3 pm in the MTRP Visitor Center.
The pop-up art show features works of the members of the Friends of Taka Sumi-e, an art-based society in San Diego, California, dedicated to studying and sharing the art of Japanese-style sumi-e brush painting. The society was founded in 2002 by Takashi Ryuho Ijichi, long-time San Diego Community College art instructor and a leading figure in San Diego’s Japanese cultural community.
