Bill Brady Gallery is pleased to present 'Living in America'a solo exhibition of paintings by Koichi Sato.

After living America for 25 years and experiencing American television, comics, music, food and culture he began painting the America as he saw it. Koichi is self-taught and has no formal art training as a painter and yet his style would make the viewer see otherwise. Portraits of Astronauts, Cheerleaders, Gangs, Police, Models, Baseball players and Bodybuilders grace the canvases almost like a yearbook of American life and beyond. His depiction of American society especially during this time in our country is welcomed with humor and delight.

The National Art Center in Tokyo opens “Tadao Ando: Endeavors,” an exhibition centered on the life and works of Japanese contemporary architect Tadao Ando, Hon. FAIA. Ando's self-taught, minimalist architecture is associated with bare geometric forms that are free of ornamentation, but rich in depth and character. The former boxer turned architect brings life into the simple lines of his projects through integrating natural elements such as light, water, and wind. His structures, for the most part, utilize widely accessible materials such as concrete, steel, and glass.
