The past era
Even if you have talent, many people think,
you can not eat just by relying on painting.
so many talents gave up to
the way that they like.

A place to present the work
was very limited.

if they can make the art work while staying at machiya,
and also can direct selling their art work,
Talented young artists
Painting will open the way to make a living.

At the exhibition on the last day of the stay,
there many cases to Sell ​​paintings on the spot,
and sold out on the same day.

The next era,
I can feel the potential of the artists,
and I feel great to do this effort.

AIR Kamonasu has also become
the venue for the artist festival in March 2022.
Many people visited us.
