Nagae Seoul Exhibition, Facebook, and Upcoming Jozan, Takuo, Kako Exhibitions

Yes, this is a long title for a short blog entry. But there's actually much to say in limited lines.

First, I just got back from a successful opening of Nagae Shigekazu's solo show at the Yido Gallery in Seoul, S. Korea. I must admit, I got quite drunk on both nights I was there, and it was great fun sharing a drink with Nagae-san. It's incredible to think that we were doing shots at 1am with the gallery people over at Yido. Thank you, DH-san!

Three upcoming shows at Yufuku are all ceramic: next up is Yamada Jozan IV and his traditional wood-fired Tokoname works - his works brim with a noble air.

Then there is Kanazawa ceramic artist Nakamura Takuo's first Yufuku exhibition. It's hard to believe Takuo-san is 66 years old, because his works have gotten infinitely better in just the past 3 years. He is, without question, at the top of his game at the moment, and is finally finding his stride with his current, abstract Rimpa style.

Our last ceramic show of the year is capped off with Kyoto/Tamba's Kako Katsumi. I've known the artist for many years now, but this will be our first showing of his works at Yufuku. I am very excited, esp. as he had been wanting to show at our gallery for some time now. The time has finally come!

Lastly, some of you may have heard that Yufuku has started a Facebook page. It's still being revamped daily by my assistant Kumiko, but hey, it's better than nothing. Please look to it for near-daily updates and inside information that you can't find on this blog. And please press "like" if you enjoy what we do! Thanks!

I'm currently finalising our schedule for 2012. Can't wait to see these things materialise.

All the best from Kyoto,

Wahei Aoyama 青山和平
Yufuku Gallery

ps. Many thanks for all those who supported Nishikata-san on his debut. It was probably the best results for a young artist debut that we've ever had in our 19 or so years of business! Congratulations to Nishikata-san on a great debut, built on many days and nights of hard work.
