This month Teikyo University in Japan in Durham is delighted to host a new exhibition by the talented artist, Mr David Venables.

The Voyage ‘A Japanese Journey’ is a body of work inspired by David’s recent travels to Japan. The exhibition is comprised of 23 works of art depicting diverse scenes of life in modern-day Japan, from a busy fish market, to road workers in the foothills of Mt Fuji, to a traditional Shinto Shrine.

On Saturday we held the grand opening of the art exhibit in the Lafcadio Hearn Cultural Centre. To help set the theme of the day Colin Young’s Shodai Ryu group came in to do a dramatic demonstration the Japanese katana-based martial art in the Zen Garden.

This was followed by a well-attended private viewing in the Reading Room, accompanied by Collingwood’s Young-In Youn and Teikyo’s own Itsuko Morofuji on piano.

The paintings remain on display in the LHCC until the end of the month.
