The Nippon Club Open Call WEB Art Exhibition “Forward Together!”
September 17 – October 14, 2020
With the support of the J.C.C. Fund, The Nippon Club will open “The Nippon Club WEB Gallery” in order to introduce Japanese culture and art at the national and global levels and
to promote further Japan-US exchange.
As a kick-off, from September 17th to October 14th, with the cooperation of the Consulate-General of Japan in New York, we will hold The Nippon Club WEB open call for art exhibition “Forward Together!”.
A pandemic of the new coronavirus forced us to stay at home, and we made an open call for participants via the Internet, to support the creative activities of artists living in Tristate, which had limited space for activities. We received 54 works. As a result of strict screening, 15 excellent works were selected and will be introduced in the new WEB gallery. It is a group of works that cover a wide range of subjects, materials, styles, and all are masterpieces. We will announce the winners and hold a virtual opening reception from 7 pm on the first day of this exhibition (9/17).
At the reception, we will ask Ambassador Kanji Yamanouchi and Mr. Teiji Teramoto, Vice President of The Nippon Club, to give a speech . In addition, as entertainment, you will enjoy the music by singer Monday Michiru. Even though it is an unprecedented disaster, we would like to invite you to share the fun time with us below.
(The event will be conducted in Japanese)
