About Gallery VOICE
Gallery VOIСE is a free ceramics gallery that brings creators and their fans into closer contact. Our permanent displays and special exhibitions reflect the current state of Mino ware (Mino-yaki), a local ceramics culture that has continued unbroken for 1,300 years. The gallery is a place for contemporary artists of varying styles to display their work and share their individual visions with the public and the wider artistic community. We seek to lift up diverse voices by creating dialogues between artists, collectors, researchers, ceramics fans, and fans-to-be.
In addition to exhibitions, Gallery VOICE hosts lectures, symposia, and other events. The gallery holds workshops on pottery-making and pottery decoration for adults and children as a fun way to foster an appreciation for the craft. All our gallery staff are working artists who are passionate about ceramic art.
Through these activities, Gallery VOICE aims to create a space for the current, living form of Mino ware and to foster an understanding of ceramics that will sustain the artform into the future.
