Sept First Friday: Chiyoko Myose


M-AAA presents works from Wichita artist Chiyoko Myose’s Sojourning and Iridescence

M-AAA is pleased to present work by regional artist Chiyoko Myose, opening for First Friday September 1 from 6:00–8:00 p.m. at 2018 Baltimore in Kansas City’s Crossroads Arts District. Myose is featuring a collection of work from two of her painting series: Sojourning and Iridescence.

Using a common element of threads, the paintings and installations in this exhibition explore various perspectives into a search for meaning within the sojourner’s journey. Two of the installations, A Thread X A Thread and Gift, explore the sojourner’s relationships with people from different aspects with the material of threads. They are inspired by the fact that the threads are serving as a connecting agent in these pieces; and also the verbs related to thread, such as to tie knots, to cut, and to get tangled, are used idiomatically to express the condition of relationships in the Japanese language.

Visit M-AAA at 2018 Baltimore to see this work, and even participate in placing a piece of thread as an expression of treasuring the moment of meeting people. The exhibition will be on view for First Friday on September 1. Gallery hours are 6:00–8:00 p.m., with other public viewings by appointment only through September 21.
