    Being a coordinator for the first time has been enjoyable and educational! I'm proud to be a part of Baren - a wonderful, sharing group of international printmakers, much like the harmonious song of the cicada - people sharing their love of printmaking across the world.

    I'm very pleased to see such a successful effort of those who wrote haiku and poetry - some for their first time! Such beautiful Surimono prints to be shared here today, carrying on a fine Japanese tradition amongst friends.
