Reiki - An Exhibition by TUJ Art Student Anna Doki


(Poppies, 2006)

In her exhibition at Atelier Gym this month entitled "Reiki," TUJ art student Anna Doki introduces a new series of oil paintings drawn from her personal experiences and philosophical views.

This exhibition is the first in a series of shows featuring artwork from students in "Undergraduate Art Seminar," a class instructed by Professor Shinya Watanabe and Instructor Kaoru Sakurai. Putting together an exhibition is a requisite project for all students in the class.
