Artist Reception – “Sakura: Photography by Mark Taylor”
February 9 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pmFree
Opening on February 9 with a free reception in our art gallery is “Sakura: Photography by Mark Taylor.” Departing from the usual idyllic portrayals of cherry blossom season, it contrasts the fragility of flowers with the hard edge of Japan’s urban jungle.
Captured in these images is the tension and opposition visible in the sight of nature blooming amid a dense visual grid of buildings, power lines, freeways, signs, and commuter trains. Attend the reception to meet Taylor and to learn why he was inspired to use the hardscape of cities as the strong graphic background to cherry blossom time.
