Ward’s Valentines Project, which is one of his many long-term projects that perhaps, is his most personal. Every year, for well over 20 years, he has been making a Valentine sculpture which is a gift to his wife. In this show we focus on Ward’s Valentine’s, a collection of digital photographic prints of his original artworks that have been given to his wife for the over two decades.

Artist Spotlight: HARIMOGURA

HARIMOGURA is an artist name of two artists Jin and Aya.

Together, they create fully hand crafted planters. They design, modeling and hand paint each planter, like a sculpture. Aya and Jin make different works. Jin is specialized in making industrial or house like shaped planters. Aya is specializing in animals.

This is very first time for them to bring their works to New York City and so that you can actually see their planters at our gallery this winter. You can also purchase their work at AG Gallery while the works are on view.

 ABOUT
 "HARIMOGURA is our artist name, and it means Echidna in English.
 Our small small planters are handmade. They are made of resin.
 Since it is so small, you can put it on the windowsill or desk.
 Even though it's so small, there is an enough presence.
 Each planter is a mixed art of the artistic object and little plants, that will produce a nice space.
 We have been working at a modeling company, and we have been always creating big things there. 
One day, we began to make stuffs by ourselves after work. It is a small modeling that can be placed anywhere.
 Also, we love nature.
 Art planter of the HARIMOGURA was created on the idea combining two different materials, resin and little plant.
 We created our unique style a long time ago under the name HARIMOGURA.
We love echidna as a peaceful animal. That’s why we want to spread our own style to the world."-Jin & Aya
