From February 22 (Thu) to March 3 (Sat), 2018, we are pleased to present a two-person exhibition by two artists from International Christian University, Mr. Hiroshi Toyofuku (ceramics) and Mr. Rihiko Yaegashi (paintings).

Toyofuku has been making pottery for many years, mainly cord making, using a wood-fired kiln in Bizen, Okayama, a pottery production area that has continued from the Sue ware era to the present. The exhibition will feature approximately 30 vases and tea sets with a unique texture that makes the most of the expression and texture of the clay. On the other hand, Mr. Yaegashi, who is based in Iwate and produces two-dimensional works, will exhibit small and large works on the theme of "Hayachine Kagura" and "Mountains," both of which inspired him to move to Iwate. He will exhibit a series of drawings that capture the trajectory of the dance movements using brush and ink, as well as a large work that expresses the spirituality of the mountains. We hope you will take this opportunity to view the works of these two artists, who are rooted in the local community and continue to take on new challenges.
