I'm excited to be part of the exhibit KOKESHI: From Folk Art to Art Toy. A kokeshi is a traditional Japanese doll made from wood and painted. I'm just waiting for my kokeshi to completely dry, then I'll put her together and post her picture. There will be a lot of wonderful artists participating, and I was so pleased to be asked to create my own kokeshi. The show will open July 11, 2009 at the Japanese American National Museum.
