CCGA is closed for winter season
December 24, 2014 - February 28, 2015
CCGA is closed from December 24, 2014 through February 7, 2015 and from February 15 through February 28, 2015.
In 2012 the Center for Contemporary Graphic Art (CCGA), a facility dedicated to activities relating to prints and graphic design, opened a print studio open to the general public. The new gCCGA Print Studioh is located, together with CCGA itself, in the lush green foothills of Mt. Utsumine in the city of Sukagawa, in Fukushima Prefecture.
Sukagawa is the birthplace of Aodo Denzen (1748-1822), a painter of the Edo Period who was among the first Japanese artists to produce copperplate prints in Western style. In 2012 Aodofs works were designated by the Japanese Government as Important Cultural Properties.
With the opening of the CCGA Print Studio, small in scale but fully equipped, in this location with strong associations with prints, our aspiration is that it will serve as a welcome venue both for printmaking workshops attended by the general public and as a studio open to experienced print artists.
