By: Stephen Carr

Date Posted: 2000-05-27

Okinawan Life, Culture, History and Nature is the theme of the art exhibition Connections 2000:The Summit Show. The event started three years ago, when four Okinawan and four American artists got together.

It now has 25 artists, including many who are handicapped. They are from all sorts of backgrounds, artistic traditions and styles and there will be no restrictions on the size of the exhibits.

Their art works will express their feelings about Uchina, (the name of the island used by many Okinawans). Their interpretations will be in the form of paintings, drawings, sculptures in clay and glass, many of which will be for sale.

For the first time the show will be sponsored by Ryukyu Shimpo newspaper, the Okinawa Government Cultural Affairs Division, the American Consulate and the Okinawa City Cultural Affairs Division.

Some of the artists whose work will feature in the show are Naoto Kadekaru, Yoshifumi Kimura, George Lamson, Mary Breshike, Jorge Itokazu, Tsuneko Oshiro, Sensei Itokazu, K Machida, Hatsuko Machida, Mitsuko Higa, Linda Wilhelm, Joyce Trafton and others. Five pieces by Kathryn Clemente will also be on display.

The exhibition will open on the first floor of Korinza Mall at 6 pm on May 26. On May 27 and May 28 the show will run from 10 am to 9 p.m.

For any more information about the show please call Joyce Trafton at 935 5579; Naoto Kadekaru (Japanese) 956 4611 or George Lamson (base) 633-7002
