#694 – "Ukiyo-e to Shin Hanga and Beyond: The Art of the Japanese Woodcut" Lecture by Andrew Saluti

Saturday, March 28 at 10:30 a.m. in the Harris Community Auditorium

Japanese woodblock prints have captivated the masses for centuries, with dynamic compositions of fantastic tales or forbidden beauties, and delicate layers of color and environment. Curator Andrew Saluti, Assistant Director of the Syracuse University Art Galleries will discuss the history and process behind "Mokuhanga", the art of the Japanese woodcut, from its roots in 17th century Edo (now Tokyo) to contemporary artists and craftsmen using this unique technique today.

Andrew Saluti has an M.F.A. in Printmaking from Louisiana State University (’02) and an M.A. in Museum Studies from Syracuse University (’09). He is the Assistant Director of the Syracuse University Art Galleries [SUArt] and the Palitz Gallery in New York City. Andrew’s passion and curatorial focus is the art of the print.

Exhibitions have included the work of Amos Paul Kennedy, Jr., (2009), early prints from the Art Students League of New York (2007), and a survey of Japanese woodcuts (2013). Saluti recently opened Print Making Revolution: Mexican Prints and the Taller de Grafica Popular in November 2013, collaborating with institutions including the Blanton Museum of Art, the University of New Mexico, the Library of Congress and the Philadelphia Museum of Art; and was awarded an International Fine Print Dealers Association Foundation Grant in support of the exhibition.

Andrew has also been an active adjunct faculty member in the Graduate Program in Museum Studies at Syracuse University since 2009.
