From the Chimei Museum – “As a museum for all, Chimei Museum holds the spirit of sharing to make attentive efforts on exhibitions and educational activities. Let’s Dance! Animals – Art and Design Exhibition invited 23 artists and designers from Taiwan and around the world to take part, showing two important major elements found in both nature and artistic conception — diversity and creativity. The exhibition guides the viewers into a world of animals and re-examines the relations among humans, animals, and nature. We hope that the imagination of the artists and designers will bring humor and creativity into issues on animal preservations, and make the discussion lively and interesting to the public !”

“Impressions and Reflections” refers to Ganz’s impressionist style reflected in her sculptures and prints made of recycled material. As an artist who identifies with Shinto animism, Ganz believes that spirits live within all things– especially items that often go to waste. Ganz offers this advice to creatives:

“…the best way for artists to help reduce waste is to show how beautiful these materials can be, and what can be done with these mundane objects and materials. When we think of these things as beautiful, we value them. If we value our resources we will waste less.”

Through her highly dynamic sculptural and 2D works, “Impressions and Reflections” allows viewers to reflect upon how they treat the environment.

FogoR2 LightColor0601I am showing some of my new prints (collagraphs) as well as sculptures in plastic and metal. Half of the gallery space will be an underwater themed installation with kinetic chandelier collaboration with Jim Merz, jellyfish, kelp forest and bubble mobiles and betta.

The Making of “Changing Tides”

Illustrated lecture by Sayaka Ganz

Thursday, March 12

6:00-7:00 pm

Botanical Conservatory, 1100 S. Calhoun Street, Fort Wayne

Internationally-known local artist Sayaka Ganz will describe the process she used to develop and create the fascinating ocean-themed pieces on display at the Botanical Conservatory now through April 5. The evocative blue dolphins, luminous jellyfish, and impressive coral reef were once just colorful piles of cast-off plastic clothes hangers, children’s toys, kitchen utensils, and industrial scraps. Ganz offers insight into her imaginative journey from theme to model to material to form in this illustrated lecture. No registration required; first come, first seated. Special $1 admission price, 5:00-8:00 p.m., includes a visit to the “Changing Tides” exhibit and gardens. For more information, call (260) 427-6442.
