On September 18, we opened a new show featuring Satsuki Shibuya’s latest collection of watercolors. Her new show, titled “FLOW,” featured twenty pieces of fine abstract watercolor – each following a unique intuition, energy and spirit. The blend of art and spiritual meditation created a contemplative atmosphere in the store, leaving all of us amazed.
Even with the summer winding down, despite what the heat waves might imply, our flagship store was filled with the bright energies of our neighbors and friends. Pleasant conversations in English and Japanese filled the air, as people approached Satsuki to share with her the impact of her watercolors.
In addition to the work featured in the show, Satsuki graciously provided us with exclusive watercolors to create a new series of items. For finding Zen in each month of the 2016 year, we are pleased to provide a special calendar featuring her masterfully-crafted watercolors. For sharing a glimmer of Satsuki’s transcendent art, we added two new cards adorned with her beautiful watercolors – Reveal and Contemplate. These treasures were made available on the evening of her show, and many of our guests carried away these beloved pieces.
Thank you to everyone who came out that evening to enjoy a lovely evening of community and art. And thank you Satsuki for filling our walls with thoughtful, compelling art work.
