Art Exhibit Showcases Range of Talent Across BCA

The first BCA Art Exhibit, which attracted more than 90 entries throughout the BCA temples and churches and Hawaii, has proven to be so popular that it’s been extended past its original Ohigan observance in September and will remain up on the BCA website for now.

CBE Youth Coordinator Koichi Mizushima said the art exhibit was originally set to run only from Sept. 19-26, but the decision was made the keep the website up after the overwhelming positive response from Sangha members and others who viewed the artwork.

Mizushima collaborated on the art exhibit with Rev. Joshin Dennis Fujimoto — a talented artist who works in a variety of art media — of the Buddhist Temple of Alameda and the Enmanji Buddhist Temple in Sebastopol.

Mizushima credited Rev. Fujimoto as the inspiration for the first BCA Art Exhibit. Mizushima said the exhibit was born “from an idea to showcase all of the amazing art created by our Sangha community.”
