We've been putting together a rental rates list for the various spaces on the building. We're happy to announce that our rates are the best in the area, perhaps the best reates anywhere inside the Osaka Loop Line. We're also offering multimedia workshops, for those who want to learn how to make digital videos, tweak, restore or manipulate photographs, make animations, design websites, and many other multimedia creative disciplines. As you know by now we have two floors available for exhibitons as well as other needs such as meeting and class rooms, special events and presentations, studio, or additional gallery. SoHo AGC is centrally located, 3 minutes from Tanimachi 9 Chome station's Exit #3, within easy access to the Tanimachi and Sennichimae lines. Part of our vision is to provide a space where art is not only hung and sold, but also discussed, rethought, and re-worked. SoHo is a place to show art, make art, and discover new ways to think about art.

Well here's what the first floor looks like after all the measurements are in. The thin light grey area you see at the top is what's beyond the ceiling. All in all the space is longer but narrower than I had thought. We are currently revising our initial plans for this space in regards to furniture and overall arrangements. We'll keep you posted!

Today we took delivery on the first few items for the gallery and the cafe. We received a couple of chairs for the computer desks, some folding chairs for the multipurpose room, upright lights and a coffee table and chair for the gallery. We also went to see some art at a few galleries and there were a couple shows that blew us away.
First we stumbled upon Gallery Canal on Nagahori, Where a young artist is showing his oil paintings. They are dreamy and innocent renderings of imaginative animals in various everyday activities. His work is very detailed, a combination of heavy texture, rough brushstroke and and a colorful innocence. his animals perform activities associates with people's everyday doings. most striking for me were some of the romantic paintings wehre an elephant and a giraffe reach across opposite buildings to smooch.
Next, Hisaya Taira's "subway series 2007" at Yshiaki Inoue Gallery is simply phenomenal. His show of super-realistic underground acrylic paintings left me breathless. The delicacy of the brushstroke and smooth rendering of Tokyo's underground washed aglow in fluorescent light are superb. If you're in Osaka, go check it out!

The building has a lot of character in its simplicity of design and single mindedness in purpose. it is stoic and functional and the simplicity of its form gives it a very elegant and unique aspect amongst the buildings around it. It"s inset between two massive apartment giants, and th ebuilding seems tiny by comparison.

Over the past few weeks we've been gearing up to geth the gallery off the ground. we are currently consulting with contractors for the renovation works needed on the building we've secured for th egallery. Its a 4 storie steel and ALC clad building on Sennichimae-Dori. Foot traffic is great and the area is generally alive all day long. There's tons of restaurants, residential buildings and a couple major train stations steps from it. It's sitting on a hill so the fear of flooding is well, minimal.
