Japanese exhibition featured at Gallery 842

Jun. 02, 2013 @ 12:00 AM

HUNTINGTON -- A Japanese World Heritage Photo Exhibition, featuring the work of renowned Japanese photographer Kazuyoshi Miyoshi, will be on display through June 15 at Gallery 842 in Huntington.

The exhibition is funded by the Japan Foundation. It is organized by the Japanese Program in the Department of Modern Languages in the College of Liberal Arts, the School of Art & Design in the College of Fine Arts and the Japan Outreach Coordinator, all at Marshall University.

Miyoshi has focused in recent years on taking photographs of various scenic locations in Japan, including his hometown of Yoshinogawa, as well as Mt. Fuji and Yakushima Island. His work now is part of the George Eastman House International Museum of Photography and Film's permanent collection in New York.

Azusa Hanah Yamada, Japan Outreach Initiative program coordinator at Marshall, said the exhibition promotes international and multicultural awareness and is recommended for school trips for students K-12.

Gallery 842, located at 842 4th Ave., is open from noon to 7 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday. For more information on the exhibition, call Yamada at 304-638-8225.
