Joshua Rome's prints reflect the mountains that surround his rustic mountain home in rural Japan. Margaret Kennard Johnson's very modern intaglio reliefs and paper sculptures are inspired by ancient Japanese food vessels. In Brian Williams's works we see the serene landscapes that inspired the Japanese masters. Sarah Brayer uses traditional papermaking methods to create her colorful, many-layered paperworks. Micah Schwaberow's woodblock prints redefine the technique - he has eliminated the dark lines that normally define the shapes in a traditional print so that his works look more like watercolors.
Joel Stewart's watercolors and etchings depict the ageless beauty of a traditional Japan that is slowly disappearing, while one of Carol Jessen's prints depicts a modern scene in the style of a Hiroshige print.
