New Leaves from the Man'yoshu:
Exhibit of Paintings and Ceramics
by Yasumasa Suzuki and Seiran Suzuki
The Man'yoshu (Collection of ten thousand leaves), is the oldest
existing and one of the most highly revered collections of Japanese
poetry. The poems invoke the soul of the people of ancient times and
they show their special connection to the things of this world, their
beauty and meaning. Some of these poems are attributed to the influences
of intercultural exchanges between Korea, China and Japan.
The artists, Yasumasa and Seiran Suzuki have reinterpreted these poems
and have created a vast collection of bold and modern Japanese-style
artwork that bring the beautiful poems to life. Please come and enjoy
this inspiring exhibition. In conjunction with the exhibit, Man'yo books
from the Asia Collection of the University of Hawaii at Manoa Library
will be displayed in the Bridge Gallery.
The exhibit was
originally planned two years ago for March 2005. It was canceled after
the Flood Disaster. Thanks to the efforts of the Consulate General of
Japan in Honolulu, Center for Japanese Studies, Mr. & Mrs. Suzuki and
the Library Exhibits Committee, here in the Spring March 2006, we can
enjoy the art works by Mr. & Mrs. Suzuki from Japan and books on Man'yo
from Hamilton Library.
Special thanks to Kim Mews (mail room), Lynette Teruya (LIS Asia Coll
Dept intern), and Masashi Shimonao (Japan Collection assistant, LIS
In conjunction with this exhibit, the Center for Japanese Studies will
offer a seminar at 3:00 pm on March 9 (Room 319, Moore Hall). This will

Also, there is a mini lecture about the Man'yoshu at 5:00 pm, the
Auditorium of the Center for Korean Studies, Friday, March 3 (Girl's
Day), followed by the artists' led gallery tour at Hamilton Library (6-7

relationships among China, Korea and Japan in the ancient times.

Artists Book Exhibition
January 18, 2006 - February 27, 2006
The "Artists' Book Exhibition," an exhibit of artist's books
by members and friends of the Honolulu Printmakers, is on display in
Hamilton Library's Bridge Exhibition space and in the display cases near
the main elevators on the first floor.
Contemporary artists' books have derived from the tradition of
bookbinding. Text and imagery in artist's books are produced in various
ways: through drawing, painting, collage, photography, and printmaking
processes: including lithography, intaglio, relief and serigraphy, or even
through manipulation by xerox or computer. Artist's books may be "one of a
kind" or small editions. A book's structure may use traditional binding or
it may have an exposed, decorative binding. It may be a soft spined book
which forms a "star" when completely opened, a folded "maze" book made
from a single sheet of paper, or even individual "pages" which are kept in
a unique container.
