US-Japan exchange and mutual collaboration through art: From Japanese traditional arts and crafts to cutting-edge works by contemporary artists

The world is currently "closed" due to the Covid-19 pandemic, but actually, the Internet helps us feel connected and more borderless than ever before.

The Nippon Gallery at The Nippon Club is temporarily closed to prevent the spread of Covid-19 and for the safety of visitors and staff visiting our facility. However, with the J.C.C. Fund's support, we have decided to open "The Nippon Club WEB Gallery" with our ongoing intention to continue to introduce excellent artists and artworks. Once things return to normal, we look forward to welcoming you back to The Nippon Gallery at The Nippon Club, conveniently located in Manhattan Midtown West.

The Nippon Club is a social club founded in New York in 1905. For 116 years, we have promoted fellowship, information exchange, cultural exchange, and mutual understanding between Japanese and Americans in the United States. As part of our activities, The Nippon Gallery has introduced Japan's unique art and culture to Manhattan.
At the newly established "The Nippon Club WEB Gallery," we also introduce a wide range of works from traditional artworks created by outstanding early modern and modern artists and craftsmen to cutting-edge works by contemporary artists. In addition, we feature an array of educational programs such as virtual gallery talks and workshops to deepen your understanding of the works and artists.

The artwork in "The Nippon Club WEB Gallery" includes prices for pieces that artists wish to sell, with the exception of some non-sale items. Sales/purchases and import/export of works are done directly between the artist and the person who wishes to purchase, without The Nippon Club’s involvement. We hope that this effort will support the creative activities of artists who have been restricted due to the pandemic.

We hope you will share the joy of art appreciation with everyone who loves art worldwide.
