One of my pieces is added to a permanent collection at the Guild Hall of East Hampton. The piece will be in a group show titled Recollections: Selections from the Permanent Collection, curated by Jess Frost. It opens on Saturday, October 21 along with two other shows at the venue. The opening is 5-7pm. See you at the opening if you are in the area!
To view the full photo set (15 photos), please go to the main part of the site and click “PHOTOS”. They are under “Roger Williams University Show
2/23-3/30, 2011”. Make sure to click on the thumb nails for large images (1500 pix in longer dimension). You can also see somewhat smaller
versions (faster loading/navigation perhaps) in a Facebook photo album at Hiroyuki Hamada Art. And, you can read more about the show here and here.
Installing a show never gets boring. It’s usually filled with improvisations and surprise gifts of time and space. You go get your rental truck only to find the office is closed and you tell yourself that it wasn’t supposed to snow today… You finally get your truck and find it stuck in snow, making you wonder if it’s even possible to do it today. But things usually fall into the right places just like it did this time. We managed to hang the show with a tight schedule thanks to fine planning by the curator, Jess Frost, and the generous support of Roger Williams University.
The school sits in the beautiful sea town of Bristol, Rhode Island. The school is named after Roger Williams who led an exciting life as a believer of freedom of religion and separation of church and state in 17th century North America. He was also an expert in native American languages (Thanks to Peter Edlund, a wonderful painter, for pointing me to Roger Williams’ life story).
We have 7 paintings by Christopher Saunders and 6 sculptures of mine in the show. The show’s looking great and I’m happy and proud to be a part of it.

This is a two person show featuring Christopher Saunders and myself. It opens on 2/23/11 and up till 3/30/11. It’s organized by my dear friend Jess Frost from ART & ESTATE ARCHIVE, NY. I am excited that the show should cast some interesting perspectives on both Chris’ and my works. Jess will be speaking about the show on 3/23/11 at the university.
