my friends aya, fumiha & miwa put together a wonderful group show, Dear Japan,
for this Saturday, June 4th!

June 4th, 2011, Saturday 4-8 PM
One night only
At Art Connect New York Gallery,
491 Broadway, 5th Floor
New York, New York 10012

all art donated by artists & all proceeds go to japan for earthquake & tsunami relief funds.

it's a one day only event where all the artwork is under $200, and you can pay & take the artwork home when you leave!

you can view all artists' works & more info here on their site!

please check their facebook invitation page too.


i created the piece i'm donating above while creating this piece for another Japan relief fundraiser, as an ema.
ema, a prayer plaque for shinto shrines in japan, seemed like a perfect medium for the cause of the event.

if you're in NYC area this saturday, please stop by the gallery in Soho and support!
they will accept non-art-purchase donations as well as fundraising via merchandise sale on site.
