The gallery space of Masuda Kohboh is currently exhibiting artwork by Yasuo Nomura, an artist from Masuda, Shimane Prefecture.
Mr. Nomura was actually a high school classmate of Koh, Oishi, and Kuwabara, and he and Oishi were childhood friends who went to the same elementary, middle, and high school for 12 years. Though Nomura won’t admit it, Oishi’s presence had a considerable influence on his decision to go into art, at least according to Oishi. Be that as it may, we are showing his artwork for free, so please feel free to come and see it.
*Exhibitions at our gallery are not limited to creative individuals active specifically in Shimane Prefecture, so please contact us if you have something that you would like to exhibit.
