Last Wednesday I had an opportunity to see a big exhibition of art of calligraphy. It’s been held since Aug. 26 to 31 at Aichi Prefectural Museum of Art in center of Nagoya.
I visited the museum before I went to an English class because the class is held at NHK Center Building, which is next to the museum.
The exhibition booth was even bigger than I had thought. I needed much time to see all of the works. If I had appreciated the exhibition carefully, I might have been there for several hours.
The exhibition was quite interesting. There were many kinds of works as well.
Some were written on big paper as long as the wall, some on small pieces of paper. Some were written in bold stroke, some in spidery writing. Some were written by dilute ink, some by intense black ink.
I think it’s interesting that many people depict themselves by letters.
