The Dayton/Kyoto Invitational is an international print exchange between the Dayton Printmakers’ Cooperative and Gen Studio Group in Kyoto, Japan. The groups have been exchanging prints for simultaneous portfolio exhibitions in the Dayton, Ohio and Kyoto, Japan areas since 2003. Each year a theme is determined by one of the two groups. The theme chosen for this portfolio is “STORM.” Participating artists interpret the theme and create an image using a printmaking process or a combination of processes. Included in this exhibition are works by 21 artists from Japan and 18 from Dayton.
