DALLAS – The Bath House Cultural Center presents Light, Whispers and Dreams, an exhibition featuring six contemporary Asian artists. Exhibition dates are May 3-May 31, 2014. A gallery reception with the artists, including live folk music from China, will be held on Saturday, May 3rd, from 7 to 9 PM. Both the exhibition and the reception are free and open to the public.
The Light, Whispers and Dreams exhibition features a collection of mixed media artwork created by visual artists from Northeast Asia who are currently living and producing artwork in the DFW area. The exhibition uses drawings, paintings, textile art, and other media to explore narratives, concepts, and techniques that are tightly connected to the experiences, culture, and sensibility of each of the artists. Through the use of a variety of styles and media, the six participating female artists from Taiwan, South Korea, and Japan express their thoughts and views on spirituality, communication issues, family history, and the world of dreams and ideas.
The show includes artwork by Sunny Jacquet, Jenny Hong DeLaughter, Susan Kim, Hsiu Ching Yu, Jianping Guo, and Yasuko Hashiura Robinson.
Enrique Fernández Cervantes curated this exhibition. Support for this exhibition comes from the City of Dallas Office of Cultural Affairs, Texas Commision on the Arts, and the University of Texas at Dallas’ Asia Center, an organization whose mission is to enhance communication, understanding and productive engagement with the nations and peoples of Asia by facilitating and coordinating a wide range of educational programs, advanced research projects, and community outreach activities.
