We are delighted to showcase Ippodo Gallery for this week’s Gallery Spotlight.  Located on New York City’s Upper East Side neighborhood, the gallery was first founded in Tokyo in 1996 and opened stateside in 2008.  Ippodo Gallery is a cultural bridge to Japan’s living master artists and presents fine handcrafted and rare works created using traditional materials and methods. Each piece selected embodies Japanese aesthetic sensitivity that is born of a spiritual bond with nature. Ippodo’s exhibition program features unique objects – fine ceramics, lacquerware, metal crafts, sculpture, paintings, and works on paper – that celebrate human invention, the natural world, and sublime beauty.

Their recent exhibition during Asia Week this March, Cosmic Sound: Master Paintings by Ken Matsubara, was such a success that works from the show entered the respected permanent collections of the Dallas Museum of Art and Dartmouth College’s Hood Museum of Art.

Ippodo Gallery’s forthcoming Fall exhibition will continue to celebrate innovative and boundary-pushing Japanese artists with a solo presentation of Yukiya Izumita’s ceramics.  Expanding Earth: New Works by Yukiya Izumita will feature the artist’s latest laminate-layered sculptures, flat-folded vases, and tea bowls reminiscent of the rural seascape of the Tohoku region of north-east Japan. They welcome you to the exhibition opening on September 12th and look forward to your visit!
