Woodblock print on display The large woodblock print entitled, "Tiger and Tigress," by famous Japanese artist Toshi Yoshida is now on display in the Main Gallery of the Mendocino County Museum in Willits. Created in 1980, "Tiger and Tigress" depicts two large cats in motion and, at 7-feet long, is one of the world's largest single woodcut prints ever made. Two decades ago, Bill Zacha, founder of the Mendocino Art Center in Mendocino, made a significant and lasting connection with the highly respected Japanese woodblock printer, Toshi Yoshida. Born in 1911, Toshi Yoshida descended from a long tradition of family artists dating back to the Edo Period. For several years, Toshi taught woodblock printing in Mendocino at the invitation of Zacha. So impressed was he with the arts community and educational center in Mendocino that he returned to his homeland in the Japanese Alps to establish an art center modeled after the Mendocino Art Center. ""Tiger and Tigress" is a gift from Toshi Yoshida to the people of Mendocino County. It may be viewed at the Mendocino County Museum, 400 East Commercial Street, Willits, on Wednesdays through Sundays from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Admission is free. For further information, please call 459-2736.

Better to get it out before it does more harm. ."^'In the way "Primary Colors" Handles this issue, it shows more insight and maturity,than all but a. 'handful" of re'c'ent friairistream rriqvies: Th'is is, a gro^n-up film about real issues in the real world. Among its pleasures is the y/ay it lets us examine the full frame, and observe how characters at the side or in the background react; whole characters are developed in asides. '."'It is also very funny at times, a's when Stanton, Jemmons and pthers get in a "momma-thon," praising their mothers into the night. Or when Susan snatches Jack's ever-present chicken d'fumstick out of his hand. Or when the candidate, his wife and his aides search a roadside for a cell phone thrown from a car in anger. The movie is endlessly inventive and involving: You get swept up in the political and personal suspense, and begin to understand why people are engulfed in political campaigns. Will "Primary Colors" hurtor..>: help the Clinton presidency? To some degree, neither; it's a treatment of matters the electorate has already made up its mind about. The film has certainly not in any sense "softened" its portrayal of its Clintonesque hero those rumors are exposed by its almost brutal candor. But in a strange way "Primary Colors" may actually work to help Clinton. While a lesser film would have felt compelled to supply an "answer," this one knows that the fascination is in the complexity, in the strong and weak qualities at war with one another. The secret of what makes Jack Stanton tick is as unanswerable as the meaning of Citizen Kane's "rosebud." And the resemblance doesn't stop there.
