I would like you to feel a world different from the metal fittings used for fountain pens.

If you come to Tottori this spring, please stop by.

Location: Gallery 330 270-8 Maruyamacho, Tottori City ▷ Website

Time: March 10 (Fri) – April 2 (Sun), 2023 11:00-18:00 *Closed every Monday and Tuesday

Mr. Yabe’s abstract art work, rainbow at the entrance of HAKASE

author’s concept
The world is in constant conflict, the natural environment is being destroyed, and Pandora’s box has opened in people’s hearts. I wonder. However, it still rains on the earth (hometown), and the trees (nature) are covered with green, and the rainbow (hope) stands on the branches.
Let us love our hometown and believe in the rainbow (hope) of tomorrow (future). If you do that, something will surely start, and you will be able to regain your kind heart and beautiful hometown.
