Somé Seiryukan

Seen as contemporary art, the pieces echo the depth of expressive coloring and craft-like qualities of dyeing

A place where the artistic world of dyeing unfolds

This is the first ever museum to deal exclusively with contemporary dye works. The exhibition comprises some 500 exhibits by 100 artists - in other words, a collection featuring pieces by the maestros and young aspirants of the dyeing world who work in the Kyoto area.
Assembling the collection commenced from 1991, with a Seiryu exhibition of dyed works taking place every year (currently this happens once every two years), planned exhibitions, solo & group shows, theme-driven expositions and art shows of all-the-rage, new-wave artists, each running one or two months. In addition, various speakers - including dye-related people - are invited to give talks, which add extra and fulfilling dimensions to the exhibits.
Exhibition space is matted for comfort and lighting chosen carefully to highlight the exhibits in a fashion close to natural light, so that fine color combinations and hues will delight as they should.
