The exhibition "Ron Y. Nakasone: Formless Form, the Art of Sho" will open with a reception at 5:30 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 15, in Griffith Gallery on the campus of Stephen F. Austin State University.
The exhibition features the modern expression of a traditional art form that is still highly respected in East Asia. The art of "sho" and its metaphysical support, Buddhist thought, especially that of Zen, had a great impact on Western art in the later half of the last century, according to John Handley, director of SFA art galleries.

The Graduate Theological Union Library invites you to Formless Form, the Art of Sho, an exhibit of recent works by Ronald Y. Nakasone. Sho (as it is referred to in Japan; Ch shu) or calligraphy, is the simple exercise of writing kanji (Ch hanzi ) and phonetic script to communicate thoughts, feelings, and information. Its origins can be traced to pictographs inscribed on bone, turtle shells, and other surfaces that expressed yearnings for good harvest, aspirations for health and safe passage through life; many of the inscriptions asked for prognostications for war.
