Japanese Friendship Garden says
The Japanese Friendship Garden is excited to announce the newest exhibit, Constructs: The Art of Saori Weaving, in the Exhibit Hall featuring students of Sophie’s Gallery, part of St. Madeleine Sophie’s Center which helps to serve adults with developmental disabilities through nationally recognized innovative programs.

Saori is a free-style hard weaving with no rules and restrictions, it was founded by Misao Jo in 1968 and is now practiced in more than 40 countries.

Many Sophie's Gallery students who had not been able to express themselves through traditional means were previously sharing their once hidden feelings through vibrant, original works of art on canvas, wood, glass and other media. The program became so popular that it outgrew the available space. In 1999, with generous community support, the art program moved to a storefront in Downtown El Cajon and was named Sophie’s Gallery and Gift Shop.

On display will be artwork from the Center’s students who have learned the Japanese weaving style of saori. Clothing and other saori-wear will be available for purchase with funds going to support Sophie's Gallery and its programs.

$5.00/per person
Hors d'eouveres, light refreshments, and remarks from the organizers and artists of the saori weaving program.
