Rakusho-kai Exhibition

■Rakusho-kai Exhibition 楽書会書展
Rakusho-kai is a group of independent practitioners who follow the master Kyuyo Ishikawa and learn calligraphy in the three different locations:Kyoto, Nagoya and Tokyo. Our principle is to follow the theory and teachings of the master through ‘Rinsho’ 臨書 (re-creation based on masterpieces and classics) and ‘Sousaku’ 創作 (creative calligraphy). Every year in our annual exhibition we present the results of our practice. It is our pleasure to give people an opportunity to experience the experiments of the members of Rakusho-kai .

■Our theme this year ‘Vector: energy and direction – calligraphy is vivid ’

>Works of Sousaku創作(creative calligraphy)
>Works of Rinsho臨書 (from the three books written by Master Kyuyo Ishikawa, Histories of Chinese, Japanese and modern calligraphies.)
>Themed works of creative subject ‘to stand’
