Gallery Talk | 2pm Saturday 19 January 2013 | Free | All Welcome with curator Michael Nixon & Nathalie Camus, Arts Council of Wales Portfolio Manager, Architecture & The Built Environment Private View | 2.30pm Saturday 19 January 2013 To be opened by Councillor Sybil Crouch, Cabinet Member for Sustainability, City & County of Swansea Mission Gallery is delighted to present this Ruthin Craft Centre Exhibition, Japanese Style : Sustaining Design, an exhibition rooted in sustainable design, which celebrates the subtle and beautiful work produced by Japans designers and makers. This exhibition will give visitors the opportunity to experience some of the world's most interesting work from Japan and will feature elements of Ruthin Craft Centre's exhibition and the outcome of residences taking place there during 2012. Japanese Style : Sustaining Design shows how artists and design communities can make a valuable contribution to sustainable development by focusing on the relationship between the traditional and the innovative. It demonstrates how the strength of the human spirit can play a key role in sustainable development, and the important part that effective design can play in sustaining the environment. Additional Japanese Style: Sustaining Design exhibits offsite at the National Waterfront Museum. Exhibition continues until 10 March 2013 Supported by The Arts Council of Wales.
