In a continued celebration of talented beaches artists, the Beaches Museum & History Park is pleased to announce an upcoming exhibit by artist Hiromi Moneyhun.
Born in Kyoto, Japan, Moneyhun began drawing at an early age, and by her teen years had developed a style that combines traditional Japanese visual art forms with the super-modernity found in Japan’s
biggest cities. The woodblock prints of Giro Takihira had a major influence on her early work, and as with woodblock, Hiromi’s three dimensional cut paper pieces require a multistep process. The end
result is an art that the viewer will find to be both amusingly lighthearted and startlingly alive.
A resident of Jacksonville Beach, Moneyhun has exhibited nationally including the famous Crystal Bridges Museum in Arkansas and locally at MOCA, Cummer Museum of Art and Gardens, and the Haskell Gallery at JIA. The Beaches Museum is proud to join the list of exhibitors for this emerging talent.
Opening Night: Thursday, May 5 at 6:00pm
Join the artist, Museum members, supporters and patrons as this fascinating exhibit is opened. The three-dimensional cut paper pieces are best appreciated in person and this festive evening will be the first opportunity to see the exhibit.
Gallery Tour: Saturday, June 25 at 11:00am
For a more intimate opportunity to immerse in her work, technique and inspiration, join Hiromi Moneyhun at the Museum. The morning will include a tour of her pieces as well as demonstration of her craft.
Admission to both events is free to Museum members, with a $5 donation from non-members. A portion of the proceeds from any pieces sold will benefit the Beaches Museum & History Park.
