Project Description

"My first gallery exhibition" is a project for me to have a solo exhibition at Noma gallery.

Why Noma?

Noma, which is located in Omihachiman, Shiga prefecture, Japan, is a gallery that specialized in Art Brut ( Outsider/Borderless Art).  It is one of the few of these kinds of galleries in Japan.  The building itself is a traditional style Japanese house that has been converted into a gallery without losing its old fashioned charm.  This is one of the many reasons why I chose this gallery to hold my first solo exhibition.  Another, and main reason is that I can't forget my first experience seeing an exhibition there.  I was moved, shocked, and inspired with how much i could relate to the art and the artist creating it.  many of the artisits' artwork really reminded me of my own in many ways such as the fine details and colors they use.  

Goals for Success


  •   Materials for making more and larger artwork to display, such as      wooden panels, paper, gouache, ink pens, ink, etc
  •   To rent in the main gallery space for a duration of 6 days in mid August   of 2012.  I will update when i know the exact date.
  •   To promote the exhibition.  To make flyers, name cards, transportation, advertising in local papers, etc.
  •   To have more people become familiar and interested with my artwork, and to make more connections in the art community.

Current Situation

Currently, I show and promote my art at local art fairs at temples and shrines in the ancient capital of Kyoto.  While showing my art many people often ask me, "Why don't you show your artwork in a gallery?"  This made my mind certain that I want to have my first solo show in Noma.  I contacted Noma and spoke to them personally, and have reserved a space in mid-August. 

What if the project is fully funded? Can I still pledge for a reward?

First I would like to say thank you to everyone who has pledged and supported my project to put me at my goal.  Any extra support would always be helpful to my project.  I can get more art supplies, and especially I can put more into promoting my show. 

*Please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have.
