Thus, we are observing never-before-seen increases in cases of dependence, long-term impaired cognitive function, irregular heartbeats, heart failures, and lethal seizures. Amidst the many legal national arguments about the sale and handling of prescription drugs, individuals suffering from mental health disorders, such as recurring panic attacks, are desperately searching for natural remedies.

In her latest exhibit, Enso in Zen, Yokota focuses on the circular form (enso).

Here you'll find enso expressed in ceramic works such as ikebana containers, incense stands, and tableware.

Venture Gallery is open 10am-6pm daily. Sachiko Yokota's artwork will be featured through February 2024. Venture Gallery is located at 260 Alvarado Street in Downtown Old Monterey. Visit our website to shop online for work by our local artists.
