Emeritus art professor opens Barcelona exhibition today
SLIPPERY ROCK, Pa. - Akiko Kotani, professor emeritus of art, opens an exhibit of her works on paper today at the contemporary gallery mx espai 1010 in Barcelona, Spain.
Mx espai 1010 is a public gallery for the diffusion of contemporary art. Since its 1998 opening, the gallery has shown works by national and international artists. Today's opening includes the work of Marie-Dominique Guibal.
Kotani prepared for the exhibit in Istanbul, Turkey, which she said is a delightful launching ground. "The weather has just turned to a mild breeze off the Black Sea. Needless to say this is a lovely place to land. Food is eaten next to a sweeping view of the Bosphorus River that is one to treasure," she said.
Kotani retired from SRU in 2000 and has remained active as a paper and fiber artist.
