land-toyko.jpgLast year we hosted the fabulous folks from Tegamisha in the gallery for a fun, two-week pop-up.

This year, they are returning the favor by hosting us in their shop in Tokyo!

We will be there October 4 – 16, 2016.

Tegamisha, which means “Letter Company” in English, was launched by Isao Kitajima and Yoko Watanabe. They run a stationary/handmade craft shop, a bookshop and café as well as organize craft markets.

We will be featuring and highlighting work from our incredible staple of Northwest artists, including Emily Winfield Martin and Nikki McClure.

So, if you’ve got friends in Japan, let ’em know we are bringing a little Portland to them!

Flora gathers artwork by women working in analog media such as graphite, wood, and fabric. By emphasizing works in tactile media, each artist departs from the digital work commonly exhibited by contemporary illustrators bringing texture and intimacy to each original work.
