  • Admire this rarely seen private collection of bamboo crafts in Japan for the first time
  • Browse a curation of bamboo artwork dating back as far as the Meiji Era (1868-1912)
  • Discover masterpieces of the form by Shono Shounsai and Hayakawa Shokosai I

The craft of weaving bamboo peaked in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Collectors Diane and Arthur Abbey have admired and amassed sculptures and baskets since they discovered their love of the art form in the 1990s.

Admire 75 pieces from the Abbey Collection, back on their home soil until December 2019. The exhibit showcases a wide range of work, from flower baskets to contemporary pieces.
