It has become a pleasant season when you want to take a leisurely walk.
It's a cloudy sky, but it's a calm day. I thought, "Let's go there," and headed to Teraya-cho, Aoba-ku, Yokohama. It is also known as the temple hometown and village, and it is a green area conservation area where you can still see firefly.
When you get off the bus and walk in the countryside for a while, you can see the building with the air of Totoro.
Actually, it's a very modern gallery and cafe called "Teraya Studio".

Various exhibitions such as art, fashion, crafts, and sometimes rakugo are held here.
When I looked into it, knits with a colorful and mysterious composition were floating in a simple space.
When sewn between knits, it seems to be wrapped in a rhythmic sound.

The artist who was in the exhibition is Yoko Takeshita who lives in Oita. A graduate of the Tokyo University of the Arts oil painting graduate, she creates a unique knit, which is regarded as an installation in which her own painting walks through the city.

He knew that knitwear was self-taught, and his happy memories of knitting with his mother in his childhood are working.
Also, he says that he values the improvisational style of spinning colors and materials that feel sympathy from time to time. Combined with the textiles that I drew myself, this is the art of wearing it.

At first glance it seems difficult to wear, but it is strange when you look through the sleeves. Surprisingly wearable Isn't it stupid? What's more, the freedom to somehow be released will also emerge. You can rotate the skirt 360° and decide the front depending on the mood of the day. The top and bottom and upside down will change the look of the outfit. Art transmission in a corner of the countryside!

Takeshita-san's knitwear first-timers and repeaters, young and old alike, just trying to see each other sharing their new sensations while trying on one after another But exciting. It's addictive to experience the fun of opening new creative doors inside you that you haven't noticed yet. !!
Despite being clothes, what was unfolding right before was "moving paintings", an installation that the artist intended.
"Yoko Takeshita's World Exhibition" that touches the depth of "wearing". It is held until May 6.

Well, after having enjoyed for a while, have lunch at the cafe. A pleasant feeling of fresh green that looks beautiful even in the overcast sky!

The menu on this day was appetizers such as colorful bean and orange salad, squid and celery ginger marinade, croquette of beef and Aoyama pepper, sauteed sardines and spring vegetables. It also comes with homemade bread, desserts, and drinks, and it's hearty.

The pesticide-free vegetables that we grow ourselves have a solid taste that is full of love. Aoyama Pepper's croquette seems to have restored the taste of the mother of the gallery artist Hiromi Sakagami.

In addition, the store is lined with works by select artists related to the Teraya studio and select goods, so there are plenty of things to enjoy. Time passes in no time.

When my stomach was completely satisfied and I was about to go home, Mr. Sakagami said, "I'm going to pick up vegetables in the field, so let's go with him."

Sunny lettuce, garland chrysanthemum, and arugula are growing very close to the gallery. From now on, tomatoes will be popular." alt="" width="1024" height="766" />
"I'm more embarrassed than my surroundings, but I'm embarrassed..." He cheered me and appreciated the fresh vegetables.

"Value the time that flows and the time that does not flow"
It was a day when I was fully immersed in this word that it was the theme of the Teraya studio.
