> was it the JSA who made the announcement Lynn??I

I actually heard about it being clinched here on the list. I also was
looking forward to it, as  last time, I had a really good show at Royal
Albert Hall in conjunction with  Sumo . I was invited  by the London
sponsors, who turned out to be difficult, even to the JSA, so Dewanoumi
Rijicho organized the whole thing for me and was a tremendous help. I
don't expect that kind of support with the present JSA crew, but I was
planning on doing something...

I will try to contact an old friend of mine, the recently retired British
Ambassador to Japan to see what he can find out about all of this.

Any other leads?

CNN reported on the artist: “Few artists so completely dominate their
field that their name becomes synonymous with the subject matter, but Lynn
Matsuoka has succeeded in capturing the essence of Sumo and has won a
loyal following along the way”

Her artwork is in corporate and private collections around the world, in
the Morikami Museum collection, and was recently requested by the National
Sumo Museum in Tokyo .

Thank you for visiting our installation at the Hampton Classic this summer!
