Gallery Reception: Six Dancing Brushes

For more than half a century, Hiroko Ikuta has been sharing her passion for the artistry of black ink on paper in Los Angeles.

In 1965, together with her late husband, she set up the American Society for the Study of Japanese Calligraphy to promote both traditional and contemporary calligraphy, or shodo, and pass on its philosophy and techniques to the next generation of devotees.

In August, Ikuta and five of her apprentices, Tatsuko Oku, Ritsuko Kashiba, Itsuko Ramos, Tomoko Hiraoka and Mitsuru Shimizu, will exhibit their calligraphic works at the Frederick Harris Gallery.

Born in Okayama in 1929, Ikuta studied under calligraphy master Keinan Ohara and Seikai Kunii, a pioneer of contemporary calligraphy.

The American Society for the Study of Japanese Calligraphy is the largest Japanese calligraphy group in the United States.
