CWAJ Print Show

63rd CWAJ Print Show (October 23 – October 27, 2019, Daikanyama, Tokyo)

The CWAJ Print Show is a highly acclaimed and internationally recognized exhibition and sale of contemporary Japanese print art. The 63rd annual juried show and sale will be held at Hillside Forum, a lively gallery space in Daikanyama. This is an unmissable opportunity to see and purchase vital works of print art by artists who hail from all over Japan.

This year’s show will feature over 200 prints by renowned artists, up and comers and first time CWAJ exhibitors. CWAJ will proudly present the winners of The Young Printmaker Award for 2019.
The CWAJ 70th Anniversary Show themed, “Wonder Women!” will also be on display at Hillside Forum with all prints available for purchase.

Year after year CWAJ has hung a dynamic exhibition that encompasses a wide range of styles, themes and techniques such as woodblock, intaglio, lithography and silkscreen. The show is so well loved because many masterpieces by highly regarded, experienced printmakers are shown and sold alongside works by emerging talent. Prices, which are determined by the artists, range from 5,000 to 400,000 JPY.

All proceeds from the Print Show and sale go to CWAJ Scholarship and Fukushima Relief Projects. To date, we have awarded more than 800 scholarships to women who want to further their studies both in Japan and overseas, as well as to female and male students who are visually impaired or want to study nursing in the Fukushima region. Over the years, our scholars have gone on to highly distinguished careers in Japan and abroad.

The College Women’s Association of Japan (CWAJ) is not-for-profit group that promotes Arts, Education, Community and Friendship. This unique, 100% volunteer organization has steadfastly enriched the lives of members, scholarship recipients and the many artists who have contributed to the Print Show.

Do not miss this chance to engage with print art and contemporary print artists and to show your support for a wide range of talented printmakers at the Internationally recognised CWAJ Print Show. Free guided tours are offered twice daily at 11:00 and 2:00. The tours are interesting, informative and there is no obligation to buy.

Hands-on Art, which offers raised images of several prints is offered daily. In addition to guided tours for the sighted, guided tours are also offered for individuals with visual impairment.

A print demonstration by ISHIBASHI Yuichiro will take place Saturday, October 26th at 11:00am and 2:00 pm.

Knights in White Lycra (KIWL) –  Is an amateur international sporting group of men & women of all ages and abilities ‘getting fit & giving back’ to raise funds for disadvantaged children in Japan. If you love sport or prefer sedate pursuits, we have an event for you!  ​​Since 2013, KIWL has raised ¥49.4 million (US$440,000) with the help of participants, sponsors, & supporters. 

KIWL – Knights In White Lycra – the multi-sports focused charity fundraising group is once again “Getting Fit & Giving Back” by hosting its 3rd Annual Go-Go Charity Run on Saturday 9 November 2019. This year we support YouMeWe, an NPO dedicated to helping children growing up in institutional homes by preparing them with life skills such as digital literacy and communication skills.

Challenge yourself to either the 55km, 21km or, the new-for-2019, 10km distance. After refreshments and recovery at the finish point, the annual highlight will be a visit to a nearby children’s home for a fun-filled time with the kids living there. Finish up with a dip at a local hot spring, followed by an optional post-run dinner party.

ULTRA/HALF MARATHON: ​Our Go-Go run on Saturday November 9th invites all-comers! Choose the 55km ultra course, the 21km half marathon or the 10km fun run on the safety of the Arakawa river, ending with a welcome party to meet the kids of a care home for whom you are raising funds. This is not a race, simply get from A to B at your own speed and enjoy the love from the children who will benefit greatly from your efforts.

If this is not enough, join one of our intrepid members, David Sweet on a ‘7 Days 7 Marathons’ expedition! His first day will be the Go-Go run, ending a week and 300kms later at a Fukushima children’s home. David hopes others will join all or part of his run.
He also seeks corporate sponsors for his running jersey, and individual donors. If you would like to support him as a fellow runner, sponsor, or donor, please email us or donate here  ​​​
