Starting on Friday, April 3, Yume Japanese Gardens of Tucson will be presenting an exhibition of beautifully crafted origami works from a local artist. 

Since 1996, origami artist M. Craig, who has lived in both the U.S. and Japan, has taught the art of Japanese paper folding to Tucsonans in conjunction with the Tucson Origami Club. Through workshops at the Tucson Botanical Gardens, Pima County public libraries and the Tucson Children’s Museum among many other local organizations and events for Tucson Meet yourself, Craig has carried on Japanese traditions in an effort to share a bit of that culture in town. 

Known for crafting both miniature and life-sized pieces, Craig's work has been selected to show at the Sonoran Desert Museum among other places. 

Craig's origami will be on view from April 3 until May 2 with admission to the gardens running at $9 for adults. There's a free opening reception on Friday from 5 until 7 p.m. at the gardens, located at  2130 N. Alvernon Way. For more information on this exhibit or Yume Japanese Gardens in general, call 332-2928 or visit the garden's website.
