I have been looking forward to writing this post, as it means the Uchiwa Fan Exhibition is finally here! And I am so excited to have been one of the selected 50 artists to participate in this wonderful show.
Here is the official facebook invite, And the press release with all the information:
Espionage Gallery in collaboration with That Fresh have joined forces to help the people of the Tohoku region of Japan in the wake of the recent Disasters which have befallen Japan. In an effort to raise money in help of support for disaster relief, Espionage Gallery and That Fresh purchased 50 blank Japanese Uchiwa Traditional fans and gave them out to 50 artists from accross Australia and New Zealand.
