The exhibition “Shibori/Tokkuri – Virtuosity and Chance in Two Art Forms” continues at The Island Gallery through June 30.

The show features these two art forms with contemporary examples of shibori-dyed cloth in various iterations and the bottle/tokkuri form, often used for sake, and offers the viewer a look at the fortuitous nature of both ancient art processes.

The exhibition features textile artists Betsy Giberson, Ana Lisa Hedstrom, Mary Jaeger, Amy Nguyen, Carol Lee Shanks and Joan Wortis, plus ceramic artists Judith Duff, Anthony Gaudino, Robin Hominiuk, Mitch Iburg, Lucien Koonce, Ken Pincus, Akira Satake, Reid Schoonover and Shiho Kanzaki. In the continuing show, artistic skill is exemplified in both shibori textile art and wood fired ceramics. Folding and stitching and manipulating various cloth to resist dye, and using particular clay bodies to form pots, utilizes skills honed over years.

An artists’ reception is planned for the next First Friday Artwalk, from 6 to 8 p.m. Friday, June 1. Music will be provided by The Tracie Marsh Band.

The Island Gallery is at 400 Winslow Way East, Suite 120. The gallery’s summer hours are 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays, and noon to 5 p.m. Sundays.
