I visited the annual exhibition held by the Kyoto Kogei Association.

Kogei Art KYOTO is always indebted to the Kyoto Kogei Association.
The Kyoto Kogei Association was established 78 years ago and has about 310 members from various fields such as ceramics, dyeing and weaving, Lacquer Artwork, and so on.
This year’s exhibition featured approximately 170 works by artists who have exhibited at Kogei Art KYOTO and other artists ranging from up-and-coming artists to living national treasures.
