Naoki Nomura kimonos @ The Nippon Gallery

Naoki Nomura kimonos

Naoki Nomura, one of the living masters of the Kyo Yuzen style of kimono design, will have an exhibition of his new work at The Nippon Gallery, 145 W. 57th St., NYC, from May 6 to May 12.

Kyo Yuzen is a traditional method of dyeing and painting on silk that enables artists to create designs with precise details and subtly shaded color effects. Twenty of Mr. Nomura’s original kimono designs based on “The Tale of Genji” will be on exhibit. See The Nippon Club’s website for more information.
