Any place to exhibit art work?
So I'm an artist from America currently living in Japan. When I lived there I would often exhibit art in local cafe's or community art shows. I'm wondering if anyone knows of any opportunities like this here in Japan? Preferably in the Tohoku region since I live near Aomori.
This cafe in Aomori looks like it might do something like that. If not, if it's anywhere near you, it might a place where you can makes some inquiries .. http://www.ai-sign.com/aiplus@/aiplustop.html I guess your local city office could also be a place to ask. I know that the city office where I live has a gallery space where they showcase different (presumably local) artists / works. I seem to remember someone on here blogging about an arts & crafts bazaar where they were able to exhibit / show some of their work, although I think that was in the Nagoya area, but it shows that these opportunities do exist in Japan.
I second the idea of contacting your local city or town office. Our local town office also displays art work and they usually have information of upcoming art exhibitions. I would also suggest getting networking with other artists through the likes of Facebook. I know there is a group "artists in Japan" on Facebook. You might find somewhere in your area through there who might have some suggestions for you. Good luck!
