To celebrate the sunlight and joy that springtime brings, we will be opening a light-hearted show of prints, independently published magazines and zines, limited-run cards, and other ephemera by some of the artists we love. As the cherry blossoms are sprouting, gallery hanahou’s space will transform into a bright and colorful, pop-up boutique filled with our curated selection of items. Stop by and pick up some unique magazines to read in the park, find some cute artist postcards to send out to friends, or choose a bright new print to freshen up a room for the new season.
Can’t make it to the show? We will have all of our prints and goodies for sale on our online shop once the show opens! galleryhanahou.com/shop

About the some of the artists
APAK Aaron Piland and Ayumi Kajikawa Piland are the fantastical magical duo known as APAK. They are a childlike husband and wife collaborative art team who live among the fury conifer giants in a little cottage on the outskirts of Portland, Oregon.

She has exhibited her work in New York City, Los Angeles, Chicago, and Tokyo, and is a regular contributor to Glamour Magazine, Boston Magazine, and Los Angeles Magazine.
