About the Event

The speaker will introduce participants to Art Japan 2021-1921, an exhibition of Japanese art from the Warehouse MKE collection. The collectors, Jan Serr and John Shannon, have been collecting art from across the globe for over 50 years. Since opening Guardian Fine Art and the Warehouse, their mission has been to share their collection with the public. In addition to learning about select artists in the collection, such as Toko Shinoda (1913-2021), Jiro Yonezawa (b. 1956) and Tsukioka Kogyo (1869-1927), visitors will see views of the gallery and learn the curator’s thoughts behind the installation. A question and answer period will follow.

Attendees of this event will be shown a powerpoint presentation of images from the exhibition Art Japan 2021-1921 along with additional works of the art by those Japanese artists in the Jan Serr and John Shannon collection.
