Artist Pick Up: APAK

Where is your Spring? Ours is here, AG Gallery. Currently, many of new art prints which are perfect for your new season’s room decor are on display: the works by one of our favorite artists, APAK (Aaron + Ayumi) from Portland, OR. Most of prints were all gone in few months, so we just received some of back-in-stocks and brand new ones.

As many people love their works so far and we have been asked so many times about them, we did a brief interview with Aaron and Ayumi about them and their works.  Hope you enjoy and get the idea how their unique and sweet art pieces are created.

AG Gallery’s 4th annual holiday gift art show with the theme of “Give the gift of art!” just started.

“ART IN BOXES” is a large group exhibition which shows/sells one of a kind artwork for an idea of the holiday gifts at affordable price. AG Gallery exhibits about a hundred of art pieces from many local and international artists. The show just started this weekend and it’s a bit early for Christmas though, we’ll add more artworks almost every other week from now. Please stop by AG Gallery for your holiday shopping.

Clay dolls by Mamaru from Japan

The curator selected small to large art pieces which would be great for the artsy gifts, such as paintings, sculptures, prints, potteries, artist books, postcards, accessory and many kind of handmade art pieces. This is the great opportunity for that if people are looking for extraordinary and one-of-a-kind holiday gifts this year or would like to give something special to someone special.

As we have retail space along with the gallery, we do the gift wrapping easily and even take domestic/international shipping! Also, people could take purchased artwork with you, which is impossible at regular exhibition.
We are always willing to help people who would like to find some great gift for holiday season, and we wish Happy Holidays for all.

Artists – Maria Montiel, Kumiko Mizuno, Mamaru, Noriko Tatsumi, Andrea Lauren, MGMY STUDIO, Michiko Shimada, BB&PP INC, Naoko Saito, Hanako Sakashita, Ken Brown, Koji Honda, Lille-lle, Brendan Wenzel, Kerry Layton, APAK, Frank Parga, Victor John Villanueva, Shawn Creeden, Stephanie Griffin, and more…

Hours: Noon – 8pm everyday

OLD WIVES’ LIES

September 12 – November 3, 2013

Opening Reception: Friday, September 13 | 6 – 9 PM | Williamsburg Every 2:ND Friday

“Folklore, legends, myths and fairy tales have followed childhood through the ages, for every healthy youngster has a wholesome and instinctive love for stories fantastic, marvelous and manifestly unreal. The winged fairies of Grimm and Andersen have brought more happiness to childish hearts than all other human creations.”

– L. Frank Baum, creator of the Oz books, 1900

This show focuses on works inspired by the artists’ childhood relationship with folklore—from the traditional to the obscure and the contemporary, all that mattered most regardless of its “cultural” merit—and specifically the misinformation, neuroses and habits these artists have as a result of that relationship, and may still be accepting or overcoming into adulthood. The show investigates a diverse selection of personal mythology by a group of more than 30 artists working in techniques including painting, drawing, sculpture and Vine video.
