Art in the Garden - Mirrors of the Mind: The Noh Masks of Ohtsuki Kokun
Thru December 3, 2017 • Garden Hours
Japanese Garden, Portland, OR

Included with Garden Admission. Thirty hand-carved Noh masks by Ohtsuki Kokun and a selection of elegant brocade costumes from the traditional silk looms of Orinasu-kan in Kyoto bring the elusive world of Noh drama to Portland in the exhibition Mirrors of the Mind: The Noh Masks of Ohtsuki Kokun. The exhibition is highlighted by performances by Noh actor Kawamura Haruhisa, who has been designated an Intangible Cultural Asset, during the opening days of the exhibition. A demonstration of Noh mask carving will be presented by Mr. Ohtsuki, who will also be present for exhibition’s opening days. This aristocratic form of theater art is vastly different from the exuberant peoples’ art form of Kabuki.
