Japanese Art of the Edo and Meiji Eras (1603-1912)
Richard Family Art Museum, lower level, Rosalind Sallenger Richardson Center for the Arts

This exhibit displays a variety of cultural expressions of Japan, including tea ceremony implements, woodblock prints, porcelains and ink paintings. The Edo Period (1603-1868) is one of the most prosperous and thriving in the history of Japanese art. The Meiji Period (1868-1912) witnessed a blending of cultures and an innovative interchange of old and news ideas in Japanese art.

Scenic Impressions: Southern Interpretations from the Johnson Collection
Richardson Family Art Museum, upper level, Rosalind Sallenger Richardson Center for the Arts

This exhibit showcases both native Southern artists and others who were transitory visitors or seasonal residents. Many of the painters embraced the central tenets of Impressionism – fluidity of form and an emphasis on atmospheric transcience. The earliest paintings in the exhibit date from the 1880s.
