what a super cool gallery. The artist was excellent. Too bad he is not here with us. His painting must cost a lot of money.

Followed the tourist map and walked across town in the melting snow. Gallery building is modern and architecturally stunning, but the local art exhibits were very small. There is a small shop and library. Best to check the current exhibits before track across town.

We had a two day storm for our ski week. Cabin fever set in so we took the train to Kutchan and walked to the Museum. It was worth the effort. Shu Ogawara's paintings we great.
