gallery made in Koganecho
"Gallery made in Koganecho", which was newly opened in the Koganecho area in January 2017, is a 3-minute walk from Hinodecho Station on the Keikyu Line. It is run by the NPO Koganecho Area Management Center, which conducts "town development through art," and is permanently exhibited so that more people can know the works of artists who have been involved in activities in Koganecho. Anyway, what you should pay attention to is its location! The Keikyu Line is built under the overpass that runs overhead !!
The interior is spacious, and various works such as photographs, paintings, and sculptures are exhibited using white walls that are partitioned by making use of iron pillars (admission is free for permanent exhibitions). It's a very cozy space with a sense of privacy that makes you want to look for works that move your heart while comparing various things, such as watching from a distance or observing the details closely.
All the exhibited works are on sale, so if you meet your favorite, you can buy it on the spot. If you want to know more about this artist, you can feel free to talk to the gallery staff about their activities and other works.
Actually, this "gallery made in Koganecho". When you climb the stairs outside, you will find an interesting space that utilizes the environment unique to underpasses. Just below the track. A wooden passage is set up in a place where vibrations are likely to be transmitted every time a train passes, creating a space where people can walk. This area is normally closed, but it may be open for some special exhibitions, and works may be exhibited. In this limited space that people walking outside can't understand, it's fun to feel the art while looking at the adventurous spirit.
When you go outside ... Show window-style public art using glass doors is also on display so that people walking on the street can naturally come into contact with art. This is a view unique to Koganecho, where art and the city are united. The key is closed so you can't go inside, but the "art peep" should also excite the viewer. Don't miss it when you hang out in the underpass area of Hinodecho-Koganecho !!
