"2021 Port Artist Pieces Exhibition First Day"
An exhibition of small pieces by artists from the port has begun.
I left home with my work at 6 am on the first day and arrived at Yamashita Park at 7:30.
Early in the morning, it is impossible to carry the work on a crowded train.
Recently, due to the influence of morning activities, the train is already crowded from 7 o'clock.
Thanks to going out to the pitch-black city in the early morning, I was able to carry it comfortably on a slightly vacant train as expected.
After eating rice balls while looking at the sea and relaxing for about an hour, I headed to the Kenmin Hall.
At around 8:30, Ms. Mori, the secretary general, arrived at the back door of the Kenmin Hall and called me on the bench in the park by phone.
The museum opened at 9 o'clock, and Mori and I entered the museum together and started preparations.
A high ceiling that blows through from the first basement floor to the first floor.
A pure white space that is spacious vertically and horizontally.
After all, the reason is different in terms of scale from the exhibition halls so far.
After 10 o'clock, more and more members came and I lined up the cards for deciding the place on the floor.
Mr. Kii, the chairman of the exhibition, gave instructions, the trader Arton worked hard to decorate the work, and young Motoda and I worked a lot as assistants, and the preparation was completed successfully.
It was a wonderful decoration, and I think it was a good exhibition that was not inferior to any other exhibition.
The Minato Artist Art Association has a very high level of painting.
The way to get in the mood is also different.
Everyone always draws and brings a masterpiece of the whole body for this exhibition.
Although it is an organization with no rank among members and no awards, it is a peaceful society where people can work together to hone their skills.
For lunch, I sat in a planting by the sea at Yamashita Park, ate rice balls again, and then drank decanter white wine at nearby Jonathan.
I was tired from the morning and wanted to feel light and comfortable.
Around 2 o'clock in the afternoon, a newcomer, Mr. Arakawa, came and the venue was lively.
He is a good friend who draws sumi-e by hand drawing, which he met on SNS.
Recently, he wanted to join the Minato Artist Art Association, so I recommended him.
We took a commemorative photo and left the venue at 4 o'clock.
After that, we took a walk along the seaside of Yamashita Park and Zou-no-hana Park, and we both went home.
It was a tough first day, but everything was done in a good way and everything was a meaningful day.
