LEWISTON — Takako Yamaguchi, a painter influenced by Western romanticism and a Japanese design aesthetic, will speak about her career in the visual arts on Thursday, Oct. 15, at Bates College.

A member of the Bates class of 1975, Yamaguchi’s landscapes have been described by Art in America as a synthesis of American Modernist painting with the stylized graphics of “ukiyo-e,” a popular style of Japanese woodblock printing.

Yamaguchi has exhibited extensively around the world. Her paintings are housed in several collections, including those of the Nevada Museum of Art and the Long Beach Museum of Art.

The 7 p.m. event in the Olin Arts Center is open to the public at no cost. For more information, call 786-6158.
