Sumie is often translated as brush painting, ink wash painting, or Japanese ink painting. In 1959, in part funded by a Canada Council artist grant, Canadian born painter Takao Tanabe visited Japan for the very first time. For two years he studied with sumie and calligraphy masters in Tokyo. Although celebrated across Canada for his seminal landscapes with low horizons, primarily focusing on the west coast of Canada, Tanabe’s sumie paintings display a confident delicacy of technique, exploring both traditional Japanese subject matter and abstraction.  We are honoured to showcase over 35 works by this accomplished artist. A publication will accompany the exhibition.

Join us for special events during the exhibit. All programs are free and open to the public.
