10th DAYTON/KYOTO International Print Exchange Invitational: FOOD


  • Sinclair Community College (map)

The Dayton/Kyoto Invitational is an international print exchange between the Dayton
Printmaker’s Cooperative and Gen Studio Group in Kyoto, Japan. Additional prints
created by a third group (Japanese artists from Print House OM in Yokohama) will also
be included.
Each year a theme is determined by one of the two original groups. The theme
chosen for this portfolio is “FOOD”. Participating artists interpret the theme and create
an image using a printmaking process or a combination of processes. The first
exchange and exhibition occurred in 2003. In 2007 the theme of “BRIDGES” was
selected to represent the bridging of Dayton and Kyoto. Some members from each
city have traveled to see the exhibitions in the past – crossing that “bridge.” During the
last portfolio exchange, the Dayton Printmaker’s Cooperative hosted four Japanese
artists in the studio. One of the artists created her “STORM” print while she was in
Dayton. Visiting artists from Japan have included: Iwao YAMAGEN, Kiyoko NAITO,
Yuko INNAMI, Atsuko HONDA, and Machiko HONDA
