KENTARO HORIUCHI -Now On View-

Raised in Osaka, Japanese artist Kentaro Horiuchi’s works are vivid and bold. His brightly colored creations seem to exist on another plane, pouring onto the canvas from deep within the artist’s own stream of consciousness. Each piece has painstaking, minute details, and yet when all combined together creates an image that is larger than life.

While sporadic as they may seem, Horiuchi has an excellent command of color and design. The vibrant colors used by the artist create a cerebral, even psychedelic landscape for the viewer to explore. By gazing into these works of art, you too can be transported to Horiuchi’s world.

 

His works are on view at AG Gallery through ending of March, 2015. To learn more about Kentaro Horiuchi please visit his website at https://sites.google.com/site/khterritory/

AG Gallery’s 5th annual holiday juried gift art show is opening very soon.

Opening on November 28, the theme of the show is “Art for Gifts”.

“ART IN BOXES” is the largest group exhibition which presents one of a kind artworks for ideas of the holiday gifts at affordable price. Many artists curated in this show are international artists currently living and making in different countries including Poland, United Kingdom, Germany, Australia, Mexico, and Japan. Most of international those artists are already known and loved in their country, but not yet widely known here in NYC.

In this show, you will find many amazing art works that you can only find in here at our gallery. AG Gallery exhibits over a hundred of art pieces from many local and international artists. The show will start on Friday 28th,  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.

The curator selected small to large art pieces which would be great for the artsy gifts, such as paintings, sculptures, prints, potteries, artist books, artist hand design body tattoos, 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. Art, I believe, is always a very rich and special gift regardless the price.

For this specific exhibition, we are willing to do the gift wrapping as well as we will take domestic/international shipping!Also, this is a show that you could take your purchased artwork back with you.

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.
