Marine Day Art Show in New York Part III
Period October 10 - 17, 2019 (closed October 13th and 14th)
The Nippon Gallery at The Nippon Club is pleased to host Marin Day Art Show in New York Part III by 34 artists who love the sea and were selected by public invitation from October 10th to 17th, 2019.
Ms. Yoshie Eko, representative of the “Marine Day Art Show”, which hosts this exhibition, talks about her aspirations for the third New York Exhibiton, “We were devastated by the tsunami in the Great East Japan Earthquake, but we love the ocean that is essential for humanity to live. We hope that the participating artists who pay homage to the sea and seek symbiosis with the sea will deepen exchanges with overseas people through their own artworks, and achieve mutual understanding with overseas artists at the exhibition”.
In this exhibition, 34 modern artists will exhibit 32 paintings and 2 sculptures. Their works of art express gratitude for the rich seas of Fukushima Prefecture before the Great East Japan Earthquake and the spirit of requisition for the victims of the tsunami.
“Through this exhibition, we would like to introduce Japanese contemporary art to the world again. We hope that a new artist who can play an active part in the world will be born from this art show,” says Ms. Eko.
We hope you will visit the gallery during the show.

Daisen Yuzen Dyeing Exhibition ~ Dye your heart ~ IN New York 2019
Period 2019年10月25日（金）～ 2019年10月31日（木）
By Eiji & Kanayo Kawahara
Tottori Prefecture Traditional Craftsman
The Nippon Gallery at The Nippon Club is pleased to host “Daisen Yuzen Dyeing Exhibition ~ Dye your heart ~ IN New York 2019” by Eiji & Kanayo Kawahara, Tottori Prefecture Traditional Craftsman. Daisen Yuzen Dyeing is a local craft from Tottori Prefecture and was certified as “a regional resource” by the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry in 2009.
Tottori Prefecture is surrounded by rich nature, and among them, Mt. Daisen, one of the four most famous mountains in Japan, with a history of more than1300 years, boasts the beauty and majesty of the deity of the mountain. It is highly regarded for tis long history and the traditions and culture developed in the area and is also recognized as a Japanese heritage.
Mr. and Mrs. Kawahara have been producing splendid works of Daisen Yuzen Dyeing for many years at the foot of Mt. Daisen. Mr. Kawahara studied dyeing technique in Kyoto and, in 1982, established his hand-painted dyeing “Atelier Kawahara” in his wife, Kanayo’s hometown, Houki Town. They made the catchphrase “dye the color, dye the cloth, dye the heart”. Since then, they have been producing their original works inspired by the catchphrase. Now their dyeing works receive a high evaluation not only in Japan but also overseas.
As a new attempt, they collaborated with a major Japanese sports maker, ASICS Onitsuka Tiger, and produced “cherry blossoms sneakers” in April 2017 and “autumn leaves sneakers” in October 2018.
In the exhibition, the above-mentioned sneakers, kimono, obi, sandals, bag, dyed picture, tapestry, lampshade and other small works will be exhibited. Works with angel-wing, a symbol of love and peace, which originated in the United States, and dyeing works with Japanese cherry blossoms and American roses will be also displayed.
Through this exhibition, Mr. and Mrs. Kawahara hope that Tottori Prefecture’s traditional crafts will be introduced to New Yorkers and this exhibition will lead to cultural and international exchange between Japan and the United States.
