Color-it Glass Exhibition

June 4th(Sat) through June 23rd 2016

Opening Party: June 5th(Sun) 16:00~

Japanese came in touch with glass, as it is said, some 2000 years ago in Yayoi Period. Small blue and green beads were excavated. They must have been quite valuable then. With technological development, glass grew more elaborate and expressive in artists' hands.

At Gallery Yusai's first glass exhibition, five artists unfold their unique and distinctive works through a media by the name of glass.

Enjoy fully the miraculous beauty and potentiality glass possesses.
