Detail: In celebration of Asia Week New York March 2022, Onishi Gallery (521 W. 26th Street) is proud to announce its newest anticipated exhibition The Eternal Beauty of Metal opening on March 16th. The exhibition’s title, The Eternal Beauty of Metal reflects the philosophy of Ōsumi Yukie—Japan’s first female Living National Treasure in metal art. Yukie articulates, “ . . . something particularly meaningful about the way that metals can substitute the permanent for the fleeting and transitory, conferring eternity on phenomena that would otherwise have a limited lifespan.” The exhibit, features vessels made from gold, silver, platinum, copper, lead, and unique Japanese alloys; while being worked in techniques specific to, casting, chiseling, hammering, and overlay, The Eternal Beauty of Metal showcases the beauty behind these contemporary masterpiece artist’s, while enhancing distinct personal modes of expression, unified together by their embrace of traditional methods. Select metalwork artists will be displayed in this exhibit, among artists featured in The Metropolitan Museum of Art’s current exhibit: Japan: A History of Style
