Bay Area writer Leonard Koren reads from his new book Wabi-Sabi: Further Thoughts at O’Hanlon Center for the Arts on Friday, May 13 in the gallery. 
Wabi-Sabi: Further Thoughts is Koren’s follow-up to Wabi-Sabi: for Artists, Designers, Poets & Philosophers, “the seminal volume on the beauty of things imperfect, impermanent, and incomplete.

“It’s an important book for thoughtful creators,” says Koren, who trained as an artist and architect.

Wabi-Sabi represents Japanese aesthetics and a Japanese world view centered on the acceptance of transience and imperfection. The aesthetic is sometimes described as one of beauty that is “imperfect, impermanent, and incomplete”.as s a leading design and aesthetics theorist. Among his books are Wabi-Sabi: for Artists, Designers, Poets & Philosophers.
After the reading, Mr. Koren will take questions. O’Hanlon Center hosts a wabi-sabi exhibit in their gallery every June.  Artists interested in submitting to the show will find inspiration and clarification at this evenings talk. Copies of his books will be available for purchase and signing. Space is limited so register early.
