Japan Society's zen art workshop with artist Max Gimblett

Next month we'll be participating in a series of workshops that are facilitated by the Japan Society in New York City featuring: prominent New Zealand artist Max Gimblett (who is featured in the video above), and museum educators Petra Pankow and Suzanne De Vegh. We will be working with students from different schools in Manhattan as we learn about Zen Art and later create it ourselves. The results of the experience will be exhibited at the Japan Society in conjunction with the current show "The Sound of One Hand: Paintings and Calligraphy by Zen Master Hakuin" which runs through January 9, 2011.
