Clark Center opening spring exhibition with Buddhism theme art
The Clark Center for Japanese Art and Culture opened the spring exhibition with Buddhism theme art on Feb4. The exhibition continues to open until April 28.
The Clark Center’s new exhibition Wrathful Deities and Compassionate Bodhisattvas: Aides of the Buddhist Faith showcases the diverse forms of aid through exquisite Buddhist sculptures and a rare bronze votive plaque (kakebotoke), ranging in dates from the 12th to the 14th century.
Also featured are sophisticated Buddhist hanging scrolls dated from the same period, as well as intriguingly painted saints and deities created during the 17th to the 19th century.
Wrathful Deities and Compassionate Bodhisattvas: Aids of the Buddhist Faith is curated by Sabine Neumann, Curatorial Assistant of the Clark Center.
Gallery hours: Tuesday through Saturday 12:30 – 5 pm. Closed on national holidays and during the month of August.
Admission: $5 for adults, $3 for students and active military service with valid ID. Children 12 and under free.
Weekly docent tours are held Saturdays at 1 pm and guided group tours can be arranged by calling the Center in advance at (559) 582-4915.
The Clark Center for Japanese Art and Culture is located at 15770 Tenth Ave, Hanford, CA 93230. It takes three hours to drive from Los Angeles to Hanford. www.ccjac.org
