Collaboration exhibition

It will be held in April.

2020 was a year of chaos and turmoil not only in Japan and the United States, but in the world as well, but from a positive perspective, I think it was possible for artists to take a closer look at their work. It is New York-like thinking that is more positive than negative, overcomes the crisis, walks toward a new future, and opens up new possibilities.


In 2019, with the new partnership from the Lower East Side area to the Chelsea area gallery "Viridian Artists Gallery", not only the annual art fair exhibition and summer exhibition, but also the autumn arts and craft gift exhibition , The range of activities has expanded, such as collaborative exhibitions with American artists. In addition, under the scourge of Corona, many events are now being held in a new style of "virtual" in the direction of activating remote and online development.


Viridian Artists Gallery is run by architects, designers, cue letters, artists and other creators who are active on the front lines. It is an organization that has supported the activities of ambitious and up-and-coming artists for more than 50 years since it was established in the 1960s. The annual schedule will be decided by the members and special exhibitions through discussions by the steering committee members.


Along with the rigor of veteran creators with solid eyes, the direction from the same artist's perspective is always based on the support of the artist. Vernita Nemec, the director of the gallery, pays attention to the activities of the NY Art Wave Project, shows a keen interest in the works of Japanese artists, and cooperates with exhibitions and collaboration events at the gallery.


In 2020, the world was confused by the violence of an unknown virus called the new coronavirus, but the gallery quickly escaped from the chaos and is engaged in activities to raise the morale of artists and planning support.


The 2021 NY Spring exhibition titled "SAKURA for Tomorrow" will be held as a collaborative exhibition by American and Japanese artists at the board meeting of the Viridian Gallery. It became "SAKURA for Tomorrow: contemporary artists from Japan and America in conversation".


As the title suggests, an exhibition will be held in New York on the theme of various thoughts of Japanese and American artists who have overcome the dark times and turned their eyes to a new tomorrow and future. This is a great opportunity to share your work alongside American artists. We sincerely look forward to the participation of ambitious artists.
