The Rosemary Berkel and Harry L. Crisp II Museum presents Jun Kaneko, from September 24 to December 5, 2010.

The public is invited to attend a reception on Friday, October 1, 4-8 p.m. The exhibit will remain on display through December 5.

ART SLAM!, a lively debate/performance between two individuals centered on this exhibition will be Thursday, Oct. 21 at 6:30 p.m. Audience members are encouraged to participate in the debate.

Kaneko will give a lecture Tuesday, November 2, at 6 p.m. in the John and Betty Glenn Convocation Center at Southest's River Campus.

This exhibition is an extensive representation of Kaneko's work in large scale ceramic sculpture, drawings and paintings during the last two decades. A prolific artist, Kaneko learns by process and through the dialog between maker and object, a distance he is constantly challenging, achieving an intimacy with his medium where his bold hand can seem invisible. Mainly identified as a sculptor, Kaneko also works on equally technical and innovative levels in glass, textiles, bronze, paper and canvas.

Kaneko's work is included in more than forty museum collections including the Honolulu Academy of Arts, the Museum of Nebraska Art and the Smithsonian American Art Museum. He has been honored with national, state and organization fellowships and an honorary doctorate from the Royal College of Art in London.

The Rosemary Berkel and Harry L. Crisp II Museum is the sponsor of this exhibition. Tour Development by Smith Kramer Fine Art Services, Kansas City, Missouri. Financial assistance for this project has been provided by the Missouri Arts Council, a state agency.

The Crisp Museum is located in the Cultural Arts Center at River Campus, 518 S. Fountain St., Cape Girardeau, Missouri. Museum Hours weekdays: 10am to 5pm, weekends: 1pm to 4pm. For additional information email museum@semo.edu or call (573) 651-2301.
