Karen Sokyo Swallow has a show up at the Walters Gallery, 527 East Main Street in Hillsboro. The show will remain until March 23.

This collection of scrolls explores the thematic symbol of the waterfall through the media of sumi ink, rice paper, beeswax encaustic, and calligraphy. Sokyo’s work reflects the significant influence of eastern aestetics and philosophies that have come to bear on her artistic process. She studied Chinese calligraphy for ten years with Wang Gong Yi and has exhibited work in Korea, Vietnam, and China.
