RSVP here: https://forms.gle/
Date : TUESDAY, MARCH 16, 2021 AT 6:30 PM CDT – 7:45 PM CDT
Description : Jan Kennedy, Associate Professor of Art History and Program Head of Asian Studies at the Kansas City Art Institute, will talk about the art of Zen (Zenga) in Japan from the Edo Period (1603-1868) to modern times, highlighting ways that Zen monk-artists communicated complex ideas.
Today, we often think that meditation and mindful actions are the central concerns of Zen Buddhist practices. While this is true, when we look back on the rich history of Zen art, we see that it could be quite variable in its approach, from restrained and serious to unabashedly humorous. Monk-artists such as Hakuin Ekaku (1685-1768), Sengai Gibon (1750-1837), Keidō Fukushima (1933-2011) and others conveyed ideas in both of these modes, knowing that the Zen mind can be discovered through many different paths.
March 18 and March 24 - JETAANY Sashiko Sampler Kits & Stitching Nights
Details: Literally translated as “little stabs,” Japanese sashiko stitching is a practical form of embroidery traditionally employed to reinforce and patch worn-out material. While still utilized in mending, sashiko's signature white-on-blue geometric patterns lends itself to decorative use as well. JETAANY is pleased to team up with Jessica Marquez of Miniature Rhino to equip you with everything you need to try your hand at sashiko!
JET alumni can purchase a Sashiko Sampler Kit for the special price of $13 (retail value $22, plus shipping), and will be sent six 4” fabric squares with printed patterns, thread and needles, and easy-to-follow instructions. We invite you to join us for one or both JETAANY Virtual Craft Nights in March, where we’ll share some basic tips and enjoy communal stitching. Note: The discounted $13 kits are available to JET alumni only. A limited number of kits are available for non-JETs at $20 each, while supplies last. All prices include shipping via USPS within the United States.
