@ Western artists have long been influenced by many aspects of Asian art, including its forms, its techniques, its compositions, its materials. A new exhibit called "West Meets East" at Towson State explores the influences of Asian arts on nine American artists.

Curated by faculty member Dorothy Fix, the show includes works by Tim Barrett of Iowa, a papermaker who studied art in Japan on a Fullbright fellowship; fiber artist Glen Kaufman of the University of Georgia, who divides his time between Georgia and Kyoto, Japan; Helen Mason, whose jewelry reflects both

Japanese art and minimalism; and Kathryn Narrow, ceramist whose work is illustrated here. The show will run at Towson State University Asian Arts Center's Roberts Gallery through Oct. 21. For information, call (410) 830-2807.
