With the help of Ad Maiora, Yoko is putting together a benefit concert to raise money for the victims of the tsunami with all moneys collected going to the Japanese Red Cross.
The concert is on Sunday, May 29 @ 5:30 pm, at the Circolo Ufficial, concerto di musica lirica vocale. I plan to attend.
We were invited to celebrate the up-coming event at her home.
Her latest art works hung in her apartment are made of rice paper. Textile art.
|Yoko and her art work|
She has digitally transfered her work onto silk. Maria Teresa gave me one of the silk scarves as a gift! Lucky me to have wearable art!! and such a special friend. Thanks MT.
