On March 11, 2011, just one month ago, a catastrophic sequence of natural disasters and unforeseen events rocked the nation of Japan. The death toll is still climbing, with over 10,000 people who lost their lives, and almost 20,000 people reported missing. Over 300,000 people lost their homes and are now living without adequate food and water. Millions of people are living with anxiety and fear of being exposed to the dangers of raising radioactive levels. And their struggles are far from over.

WE ARE ONE features artworks donated by Japanese artists living in New York to support the people in Japan. Our mission is to raise money to help with the relief efforts of the Japan Earthquake and Nuclear Crisis, and spread awareness of what has happened, and what we can do among the international community. We have art donations from approximately 100 professional Japanese artists living in New York, in painting, drawing, mixed media, prints, and photography. All donated artworks will be sold at a reasonable price of 100-200$. 100% of the proceeds will go to the Japan Society’s “Japan Earthquake Relief Fund”.

The New York Institute of Technology has generously donated Gallery 61 in Manhattan to use for our cause.

There will also be live performances by Japanese artists during the exhibition.

“Love Art & Help Japan” donation box will also be available during the exhibition.

We sincerely hope you will support us and come to WE ARE ONE.

Only cash and checks drawn from US banks can be accepted.


 

3月11日2011年に起きた一連の悲劇は、日本に壊滅的打撃を与えました。今なお多くの人々が核の恐怖におびえながら、食物、水の不足に苦しみ、また身内の消息不明などの不安を抱えながら、心の平静を取り戻せずにいます。

30万人を越えるとも言われる避難者は今、十分な食事や水のない中で、放射能レベルが上昇する危険にさらされています。

“WE ARE ONE”は、ニューヨークを活動の拠点とする、日本人アーティストをフィーチャーしたチャリティー展覧会と言う形で、少しでも被災者方達の助けになろうと企画されました。その結果、多くのアーティストから賛同を得、100名以上のアーティストが参加する一大展覧会となりました。展示作品は$200以下で販売し、本展の収益はすべて、Japan Societyの“Japan Earthquake Relief Fund”を通じ、支援先に送られます。

会場となるのもまた、この展覧会の主旨に賛同し、暖かく支援を申し出て頂いた、ニューヨーク工科大学11階にあるギャラリー61です。

当日は、様々なアーティストによるパフォーマンスも予定されています。

また、会場には被災者支援キャンペーン“Love Art & Help Japan”の募金箱も設置致します。こちらも併せてご協力下さい。

是非とも多くの皆様にご来場、ご協力を頂ければ幸いです。

注:作品購入の際は、キャッシュ、チェックのみでのお支払いになります。クレジットカードでのお支払いはできません。
