Rosemary WRIGHT, Ph.D.

Rosemary Wright is an interdisciplinary artist; cross-cultural scholar, published author, art historian, independent curator, college administrator, guest lecturer and professor showing large digital images in galleries and museums in Japan since 1999.

A solo exhibition was seen at Gallery K in Kurashiki (倉敷市), Japan in August, 2011. The gallery is located in the historic Bikan-chiku area of canals, old merchant houses and museums.

Since 2000, Wright has been a member of 

Art•SUN, the only group of contemporary, professional Japanese women artists in Japan,  showing in galleries and museums in the larger Setouchi area of Western Japan.

In tandem with the first Setouchi International Art Expo, Art•SUN mounted an exhibition at Gallery Sans Quoi in Tamano, on the Inland Sea during August, 2010.

In August of 2011, Art•SUN hung three exhibitions in Kurashiki, Japan. One at the Kurashiki City Museum and the others at Gallery Shiwori in Kurashiki, an elegant old machiya.

One of the exhibitions at Shiwory was a collection of small works donated by women artists from the U.S., Korea, Austria and Japan which were sold at auction and the proceeds donated to support the children orphaned by the Tohoku Tsunami in 2010.

At the same time, Wright hung a solo at Gallery K, located on the Bikan Chiku, the canal that runs through the historic district of Kurashiki. All three sites are within walking distance of each other.

An opening for all three exhibitions was held at Gallery Shiwori on August 29th, ’11.

In May, 2016, Wright joined Art SUN in hosting a memorial exhibition for ODA Hiroko, one of the original founders of Art SUN. 

In November of 2017, Wright will show new work at the Kurashiki City Museum of Art with the members of Art SUN in celebration of 30 years since the founding of this extraordinary collective of diverse contemporary women artists.

That exhibition will travel to the Tenjinyama Cultural Plaza of Okayama Prefecture in 2018.
