This event has ended.

In 2008, the tiny boat Ippodo Gallery set sail on a vast ocean that is New York. Excited, eager, and bright, Ippodo Gallery opened in Chelsea. Six months later, the 2008 financial crisis hit and then in 2012, Hurricane Sandy struck New York, flooding our gallery. The next year, we moved to 86thStreet and it is here we continued to function as a private gallery for the last six years. Looking back, the turbulent seas that have crashed upon our tiny craft have turned out to be blessings. Ones that allowed us to deepen our relationships and provide us with the courage to, yet again, grow and move forward.

The Japanese possess a love of nature and aesthetics, one that is seen clearly through the serenity and heart of the tea ceremony. To express this affinity, we have developed delicate techniques and elevated these elements to the level of fine art through ceramics, lacquerware, metalworking, textiles, bamboo and painting. Since our opening, Ippodo Gallery has curated art to emulate this sense of beauty, serenity, love, and have fostered meaningful relationships with the artists who create it.
