"Fuji from Kajikazawa in Kai Province," Katsushika Hokusai

The Gibbes Museum of Art is bringing two special exhibitions of Japanese art beginning April 30. The collections, Lasting Impressions: Japanese Prints from the Read-Simms Collection and Japonisme in Charleston: Alice Smith and Her Circle, will be on view in galleries eight and nine until Oct. 3.

Lasting Impressions will showcase 60 rare prints amassed during the first part of the 20th century. It reflects the full range of popular print subjects by master Ukiyo-e artists of the Edo period.

“Moonlight on the Cooper River,” Alice Ravenel Huger Smith

Japonisme in Charleston will explore the Japanese aesthetic in Charleston through the works of native artist Alice Ravenel Huger Smith and other Charleston artists who embraced the tenets and techniques of Japanese art.

Both pieces will be accompanied by related programming throughout the year. For more information and a full listing of exhibitions and programming, visit gibbesmuseum.org.
