J.B. Blunk: Nature, Art & Everyday Life 

April 21-September 26, 2018

Discover northern California’s best kept secret in design and craft: J.B. Blunk (1926-2002), a mid-century artist whose connection to nature governed his daily life. Inspired by Japanese philosophies of nature and art’s inseparability, and influenced by rural utopian communities, Blunk’s muse and often his source of materials was the beautiful natural environment of Inverness, California. Blunk’s home property was his ultimate work of art, filled with his handcrafted furniture, ceramics, sculptures, and other functional objects used by his family. His remarkable craftsmanship also took the form of large-scale public works of art, including The Planet, a redwood sculpture commissioned by the Oakland Museum of California in 1969. J.B. Blunk: Nature, Art & Everyday Life brings together a comprehensive survey of the artist’s works. See northern California’s landscape anew through Blunk’s eyes, and get inspired to find the beauty of nature and art in your own daily life.

墨境 Ink Worlds: Contemporary Chinese Painting

05/23/2018-09/03/2018
11:00 上午 - 5:00 下午
Cantor Arts Center at Stanford University
Stanford  CA

The first exhibition at the Cantor Arts Center devoted solely to contemporary Chinese ink painting features more than 40 works of art by nearly two dozen artists. Drawn from the remarkable personal collection of philanthropists and Stanford University alumni Akiko Yamazaki and Jerry Yang, the exhibition focuses on the contemporary period, probing the astonishing diversity of modern ink painting and calligraphy—artistic practices that are among China’s oldest and most enduring art forms. 墨境 Ink Worlds: Contemporary Chinese Painting from the Collection of Akiko Yamazaki and Jerry Yang considers ink painting from the 1960s through the present, examining salient visual features and international connections, as well as the ongoing impact of historical techniques, materials, and themes. The exhibition addresses not only the capacity of ink painting to evolve but also the contemporary nature of ink painting as a distinct genre whose achievements are already evident. Modern uses of ink—including photography and film, through which the very definition of ink is being expanded—are also considered. Works from the collection of Peter and Collette Rothschild, the Cantor, and from the Anderson Collection at Stanford University, add to the exhibition’s rich sense of historical consciousnes
