From Pedro Mana, Columbus Academy’s Fine Arts Department Chair:
US Ceramics teacher, and former Toshiko apprentice, Andy Rahe, has arranged a unique spotlight into the creative mind from a pioneer who elevated Ceramics into a Fine Art.
Takaezu’s artwork is in the collections of museums worldwide including The National Museum of Modern Art, Kyoto (Japan), The Art Institute of Chicago, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, and The Renwick Gallery at the Smithsonian American Art Museum. This will be the largest exhibition of Takaezu’s artwork in Ohio since 2009, with pieces on loan from the Zanesville Museum of Art, the Toshiko Takaezu Studio Project and the collections of former students.
The Toshiko Takaezu Art Exhibit will be open until March 16 and is open to the public on Saturdays from 12-4.
