Our Art Gallery features regular exhibitions and sales of works by idea-rich creators from all the arts who have been inspired by Japan’s culture, history, and spiritual heritage. These artists often have reputations that stretch beyond the bounds of Tucson and Arizona, and some are nationally and even internationally known and collected, by both private individuals and major museums.
Paintings by Ping Wei
This fall, Yume is featuring the paintings of Phoenix Ikebana master Ping Wei. Wei frequently exhibits paintings, ceramics, and wood sculptures of his own design, as well as Ikebana arrangements, throughout Arizona.
Born in China, Ping Wei moved to the U.S. in 1992. Before immigrating, he studied Tui Na (Chinese massage/body work) and today operates a healing arts studio in Phoenix, Arizona, where he is also a noted ceramic artist and master of Japanese flower arranging, or Ikebana. Commenting on his creative work, he says: “I express myself artistically for my own personal growth and to have a better and balanced life. I believe everybody is an artist, but you need to find it from inside, and through nurturing.”
The exhibition will commence with an artist reception from 5:00 to 7:00 pm on October 5, 2019. Because the reception is being held after business hours, Yume’s gardens and Museum will NOT be open to visitors at that time.
The paintings will be on display until December 31 and all are for sale.
