 a four day long art and design exhibition by Tadaomi Shibuya and Satoko Go from

Chopsticks features the work of two Japanese painters presenting a new series of works 
alongside everyday objects that Shibuya and Go have each infused with their unique 
creative styles. This body of work showcases their contrasting styles of painting; where
 Shibuya typically features reconstructed images using straight lines and faces inspired 
by various motifs, Satoko employs expressive lines to recreate plants, animals and spaces.

decorative lace tape, a ordably priced at $7 and $16 respectively.
