A New Appreciation of Batik
The Batik Trunk Show at the San Francisco Asian Art Museum was a great success. Many people came and learned about the incredible skill and craftsmanship that goes in to creating each piece. It was very gratifying for me to have the support and expertise in presenting my collection at the museum for the first time.
It was significant that this trunk show was presented during the current major exhibit of Balinese art. The ancient Hindu-Buddhist traditions from which both Javanese and Balinese cultures share common origins makes batik an important addition.
