Junko Oikawa Director of the Museum says
"Last Year, I encountered Katagiri’s powerful large graphite drawing on a huge 9m sheet of hand made paper hanging like a screen which filled the room, accompanied by a sound installation of sea waves. Almost five years now since 3.11 great Eastern Japan disaster. We can not forget, we should not forget and do not want to forget. Looking at Katagiri’s works I would like to remember."

"Milton Mixed Winter Show"

Since its inception in 1997 The Milton Art Gallery has always been committed to giving local artists an opportunity to display their work, some even for the first time. We hold several mixed shows a year where about 40 invited artists bring in a few pieces each to create a vibrant and eclectic show in different mediums, style and prices offering our customers a wide range to suit every taste and budget. These exhibitions bring together artists from a wide spectrum of backgrounds in terms of level of formal training and experience.

We sell work off the wall so there is always something new going out on display so it’s well worth making several visits.

15. Aug - 31.Oct. 2009 Lyrical Abstraction- Sculptures by Kate Thomson and Hironori Katagri

at Hill House, Helensborough, Greater Glasgow, Scotland
An exhibition of contemporary abstract stone sculpture by British sculptor Kate Thomson and Japanese sculptor Hironori Katagiri in the exquisite interiors and gardens of Mellerstain House designed by Robert Adam, and Charles Rennie McKintoshfs iconic Hill House in Glasgow.  The work of this married couple, who have been living and working in Japan for the last 20 years, shows a unique cultural synergy of complementary yet very individual approaches.  
While Kate Thomson explores sculpture as language and philosophy to create a tactile poetry of space, form and light in marble;  
Hironori Katagiri`s black granite abstract forms have a spirituality shining out from the inner essence of the material like the glint of a Japanese sword.
The two venues represent two of Scotlandfs most famous architects, and provide ideal spaces to illustrate the Scottish and Japanese cultural and aesthetic contexts and influences on these two internationally renowned sculptors whofs stunning contemporary sculpture highlights how the architecture of both Robert Adam and Charles Rennie McKintosh retain their innovative beauty and are still relevant to the modern world.
