“JAPANESE CREATIONS” comes to the Lazy Lizard Gallery.
Some of you may already be familiar with the work of talented artist, Reiko
Healy. Her exquisite creations have been featured in numerous exhibitions in
the Bega Valley and beyond. She is a member of Spiral Gallery, and she is
currently having her 5 th Japanese Exhibition, Sakura (Cherry Blossom) there
until Wed. 7 th November.
Now the Lazy Lizard is proud to announce that we’ve managed to persuade
Reiko to bring her lovely work to Cobargo, and her exhibition, “Japanese
Creations” which features clothes, jewellery, and calligraphy, will be in the Side
Room Gallery for the month of November.
Reiko Okamoto Healy was born in Osaka, Japan, and came to Australia 30 years
ago. She has been happily settled in Bega for the past 20 years.
Her close affinity with Japanese customs and traditions is vibrantly expressed
in her artwork, bringing the ancient culture of Japan alive through her focused
manipulation of colour and design. She uses Japanese hand-made paper,
Yuzen, and Kimono silk and cotton fabric for her clothing and jewellery.
She also plays and teaches Japanese Taiko Drum, and enjoys sharing her
Japanese culture with the community.
As a special bonus, Reiko will be in the gallery on Tuesdays 6 th and 27 th
November, between 10am and 4pm, where she will be demonstrating her
talents as a calligrapher, so you will not only be able to meet this fascinating
artist, but she says, if you want, she can do calligraphy of your name or
favourite words.
What a lovely thing to be happening in Cobargo….make sure you put those
dates in your diary!
You can also see Reiko’s work on Facebook and Instagram
or at Japanese Creations or Stonewave Taiko.
