Arts :: Exhibits
Japan Style: Netsuke
11:00 AM
Sangre de Cristo Arts and Conference Center
From the collection of Charles Trent
Pronounced "nets-keh", these small, intricately carved sculptural objects made of ivory, wood, metal, or ceramic, were originally used as a button-like fixture on a man's sash, from which small personal belongings were hung. The netsuke eventually developed into highly coveted and collectible art forms. Trent's delightful collection holds over 100 netsuke art forms. Today we see a broad range from "folk art" carvings to levels of sophisticated fine art and exists as such today with true master-carvers from all over the world still creating these little masterpieces.
Exhibit runs through May 21. 2nd and 3rd Floor Foyer Galleries.
