Akiko Edno's solo exhibit, "To," opened in the Randolph County Community Arts Center's Maxwell Gallery on Friday, July 5.
A native to Kagoshima, Japan, Aki currently lives in Elkins. She took basic fine art classes from Corcoran College of Art & Design, Georgetown University and the University of the District of Columbia.
Although her primary medium is origami, "To" is a testament to her skill of oil painting. This exhibit focuses on surrounding nature, as Aki shares her interests in shapes found in nature and her curiosity about her surroundings.
