For the past 35 years, self-taught Okinawan painter Hirokazu Akamine has been collecting local and international awards for his paintings. And for 15 years, Akamine-sensei has been endeavoring to pass his knowledge to artists on Okinawa. Over these years, more than 80 students have learned a unique watercolor style from a master painter.

This week, you can enjoy over 100 works from the students of Akamine's atelier.

On the 7th floor of the Ryubo Department Store in Naha, a vast gallery offers a free show from now until Sunday. If you would like an American guide, @Elizabeth Gomez will be signing in guests and answering any questions on Friday, September 27th, from 10 – 2.

It was a really nice exhibit! You have wonderful peers and a great sensei, @Elizabeth Gomez.

I especially enjoyed the "hyaku en" (¥100) theme of these two pieces done by you, even though there were one or two others on display, because of the unique concept behind them.

I will post more of my favorite water paintings from others later on as I go through my images from the day. :)
