10 – May 24- Poetry in Clay:  The Art of ?tagaki Rengetsu- ?tagaki Rengetsu (1791-1875) was perhaps the most well-known female artist and poetess of nineteenth century Japan.  Born in Kyoto, Nobu (her given name) was adopted by the samurai ?tagaki Teruhisa and his wife.  After a life of great tragedy and loss, Nobu became a nun and took the name Rengetsu, which means “Lotus Moon.”   Rengetsu collaborated with potters, painters, lacquer ware craftsmen and a variety of other artists to create a myriad of unique works of art inscribed with her profoundly personal, witty and spiritual verse.  Poetry in Clay will highlight an exquisite selection from the Johnstone-Fong Collection, the largest private collection of works by ?tagaki Rengetsu in the United States. Morikami Museum & Japanese Gardens.561-495-0233, morikami.org
