The College Women’s Association of Japan (CWAJ) hosts its annual print show in Tokyo. Since 1949 in the aftermath of World War II when a group of alumni from American women’s colleges established scholarship programs to help Japanese women study overseas, CWAJ has promoted education, art, community service, cross-cultural understanding and friendship, marking the 70th anniversary and the 63rd print show this year.
Japan’s longest running and largest print exhibition, the show presents more than 200 works by both well-established and up-and-coming contemporary artists working in Japan. Their work encompasses a wide range of styles, themes and techniques such as woodblock, intaglio, lithography and silkscreen. All these works will be available to purchase at prices ranging from ¥5,000 to ¥400,000. Proceeds from sales made at the exhibition will go to CWAJ’s scholarship and education programs.
