In Gallery 2, a five-artist exhibition titled “All Creatures Great and Small,” and a solo show from Ryoko Kaneta,  “In Our Nature” in Gallery 3. See below – Masks are required in gallery.  These exhibitions will remain on view through July 30, 2022.

“God Is Dead, But… #7” by Hikari Shimoda

Inspired by her own unique take on Japanese manga, Shimoda arrived onto the international scene in 2014 with her U.S. exhibition Fantastic Planet, Goodbye Man at CHG, introducing her very popular ongoing series, “Children of This Planet” and “Whereabouts of God.” Since then, Shimoda has become one of the most widely recognized names in New Contemporary art rising out of Japan.

A five-artist exhibition titled “All Creatures Great and Small” debuts in Gallery 2 . The group exhibition features the work of artists Ewa Prończuk-Kuziak, Dewi Plass, Matt Dangler, Phillip Singer, and Richard Ahnert.

Then in Gallery 3, “In Our Nature” by Ryoko Kaneta  marks the artist’s U.S. solo debut and features 14 new works. The Tokyo-based artist paints according to ancient Japanese philosophies, including the thought that God dwells in all beings. Her descriptive paintings are embedded in historic cultures yet exist as fleeting spectacles of nature. The artist applies acrylic paint to canvas and masterfully blends to create an image that actively develops and moves with cyclicality. Her artworks suggest a passing of time and celebrate nature’s ephemerality.

Until further notice, masks continue to be required for entry into the gallery, regardless of vaccination status.

On view: June 25, 2022 – July 30, 2022
