Leyden Gallery, 9 Leyden St, London E1 7LE

From Tuesday, May 29 2018 at 12:00 pm until Saturday, June 16 2018 at 07:00 pm

Japan Tide in collaboration with Leyden Gallery presents a series of one-week exhibitions featuring:

Week One 29 May – 2 June Hiroko Inoue | Kishu Miyata
Week Two 5 - 9 June Haruko Fujii 
Week Three 12 – 16 June Hosen Nakamura

When the cultural organisation Japan Tide approached Leyden Gallery with the concept of an exhibition of promoting older Japanese women artists (all in their 70s) it was a perfect match as Leyden Gallery has for the last five years been building a reputation of supporting Women Artists, working with International Artists and also of being an intergenerational gallery space with a range of exciting events to match their exhibition programme.

Although all four artists come under the cultural umbrella of Japan Tide each of the artists (with the exception of week one) are distinctly and individually being promoted within their own week-long show.

From Japanese calligraphy to oil painting, ink art, and other Japanese traditional dying and painting skills, the exceptional work of these artists express their lifelong experiences and a wealth of knowledge in many areas of involvement. From the fields of science to fashion to the engagement of both the harmony and discord of nature, the exposition of these artists at Leyden Gallery is a rare opportunity to engage with the first combined London exhibition of these mature Japanese women artists.
