CIVA | Christians in the Visual Arts is pleased to partner with Square Halo Books to present Beauty Given by Grace: The Biblical Prints of Sadao Watanabe. This book, and the exhibition it was written for, bring to light the extraordinary visual legacy of this remarkable twentieth-century Japanese artist on the eve of the centenary of his birth in 2013.
Even though Watanabe’s art can be found in the most important museums in the world, he always desired to have his work displayed where it could be seen and enjoyed by ordinary people. To help fulfill that vision, CIVA’s Beauty Given by Grace exhibition will travel to churches, universities, seminaries, and small museums where Watanabe’s art will reach this broader audience. It is hoped that Beauty Given by Grace will introduce many new communities to the luminous biblical prints of this dedicated and gifted Japanese Christian artist. Learn more about the traveling exhibit here, and how to schedule it for your area.
