The newest exhibit opening at Gonzaga’s Jundt Art Museum will feature the work of contemporary artist Makoto Fujimura, who has made a career channeling themes of nature, faith and his own Japanese heritage into abstract, impressionistic paintings. You’ll be able to see selections from Fujimura’s Silence & Beauty series, large canvases featuring deep blues, fiery reds and icy whites, which the artist has said are meant to evoke the feeling of overcoming trauma and the majesty of the world. You might not see those influences right away, but his art is filled with details that only gradually reveal themselves the longer you stare.
Sat, Sept. 7 through Jan. 4 • Jundt Art Museum at Gonzaga University • 502 E. Boone • gonzaga.edu
