    Society of Arts + Crafts: Now Open in the Seaport District

Help Us Bring Kyoto’s Finest Craft Artists to Boston

This September, the Society of Arts + Crafts will launch a two-month exhibition of works by Kyoto’s finest craft artists: Kogei-Kyoto x SA+C Boston: Contemporary Innovators in Japanese Arts and Crafts. The Artists’ Group Kogei-Kyoto will show nearly 60 pieces of their art at our gallery in the Seaport area of Boston. This is the first time this collective of artists has exhibited in the U.S. as a group, and the show will be one of the artistic highlights marking citywide celebrations of the 60th Anniversary of Boston’s and Kyoto’s status as Sister Cities.

Be part of this momentous celebration – Donate today to support SA+C’s Kogei-Kyoto Exhibition

 We are delighted to host such an acclaimed group of craft artists and hope you will join in this commemorative moment, which will forge ties between two rich craft communities. We are deepy thankful to Niho Kozuru, Boston-based artist and friend to the Society, for facilitating this collaboration.
