About The Yokai “Kamikiri”
“This little yokai is called the Kamikiri, the hair cutter, a mischievous hair thief demon who appears out of nowhere and loves to snap off locks of people’s hair unexpectedly. I read somewhere that these creature sometimes cut the hair of young women before their wedding day, to prevent the marriage from happening! But don’t worry, they only do it, if the bride is about the marry a bad person!” -Székely Beáta

YOKAI NEIGHBORS

AGG20_DMFront_YOKAINEIGHBORS

Dear AG Gallery’s loyal Customers and all art lovers,
Thank you so much for staying in touch with us by keeping your contact in our mailing list. We truly hope that every one of you are safe from the novel COVID-19 and staying home as much as you can right now.

AG Gallery is pleased to announce that our upcoming group exhibition “YOKAI NEIGHBORS” is opening as scheduled on April 4, 2020. *The gallery however is temporarily closed and there will be no opening reception party.
It is our first exhibition in which we attempt to introduce species of Yokai as thing that are not just scary supernatural monsters, spirits, and demons, but things that live and exist very close to us in our everyday lives. By knowing them deeper through this exhibition they can enrich parts of your everyday life like doing housework, cooking, cleaning, going for a walk, doing trash because according to Japanese folklore there are various Yokai in this world existing almost everywhere we go.

It has been a big challenge for all of us for these past weeks. We hope that by opening the exhibition and sharing new art with you, it will bring you some joy and we hope we can contribute to cheer up our community, instead of cancelling the whole show.

Due to New York governor’s order relating to global spread of the novel covid-19, AG Gallery and all other galleries and non essential businesses in NYC have been ordered to close until further notice. AG Gallery will reopen when the city removes the restriction.

The group exhibition “Yokai Neighbors” was originally scheduled to be on view April 4, 2020 ~ May 17, 2020, but in order to give enough time and chance for the artists and our customers, we have decided to extend the exhibition period. AG Gallery will keep the upcoming exhibition open as scheduled, and the exhibition will be extended (the date will be TBA). Therefore, following exhibitions scheduled for 2020 will also be pushed back and they will be rescheduled as well.

While gallery is closed, AG Gallery will try to enrich the online materials of the exhibition and available work information on our website and SNS including our Instagram (@AGGalleryBrooklyn) more than usual, so you can experience some part of exhibition from home, so please make sure to go check them out.

A HAPPY NEW YEAR 2020! Our Business Hour Changes

IMG_1744

2020 is coming very soon!

Thank you very much for all visit to AG Gallery throughout the year 2019. If you made it to any of our exhibitions in 2019, we very appreciate because that is one of the biggest supports and joy for us to curate exhibitions at our gallery.

We believe being an art collector is not something special today that only limited people can do, in a way that we have access to art and artists from many different ways, such as  SNS and online stores, that we did not have before. We believe becoming an art collector, however, is something special that adds fruitful qualities to our everyday life.

AG Gallery is excited for the new year to present new artworks from our gallery artists, as well as to introduce new artists to you all. We hope our gallery will continuously serve as a place to connect artists to our visitors in 2020 even more than 2019.

ag schedule dec jan

Schedule changes for coming weeks:
We are open on December 31 from 12PM – 6pm and also open on January 1, 2020 from 1PM – 7PM. For January, we will be closed on Tuesdays, please make sure to visit us on other days.

Happy New Year and the Best Wishes from About Glamour+ AG Gallery!

AARON PILAND | STARDUST FOR BREAKFAST
November 9 (Sat.), 2019 ~ December 1 (Sun.), 2019

AG Gallery is pleased to present Aaron Piland with his new series work “Stardust for Breakfast”, the title of the exhibition. Please visit the exhibition at AG Gallery, the show is on view from November 9, 2019 until Sunday, December 1, 2019.

Aaron Piland is an artist and illustrator based in Portland Oregon, for the past 12 years he has been one half of a collaborative art project called APAK Studio with Ayumi Kajikawa. Now Aaron is starting his own solo project.

“Stardust for Breakfast” will be a series of prints and originals translating his thoughts and feelings into color and form, like an astronaut exploring the cosmos, he rides in a ship of the imagination exploring the mysterious inner dimensions of emptiness and form, visiting abstract landscapes that melt into the vastness of space on an epic search to bring back hidden treasures and ancient memories lost in the cosmic debris of time and space.
