Floating World Gallery, located in Chicago’s Lincoln Park neighborhood, takes its name from the English translation of “ukiyo-e”, referring to images of an evanescent, impermanent world of fleeting beauty. The gallery has been one of the world’s leading dealers in Japanese art for more than 20 years, offering clients, private collectors and institutions the highest quality works of art. Floating World Gallery opened its new 8,200 square-foot gallery space in October 2009 and is now actively engaged in helping to educate the public and increase awareness of the rich world of modern Japanese art. Gallery hours are Tuesday through Saturday, 1 to 5 p.m. and by appointment. For more information call 312-587-7800 or email artwork@floatingworld.com.
 
FWG’s current exhibition, “Creating What Has Never Been” continues through Nov. 19.  The exhibition features more than two dozen works including masterpieces in Japanese post-war paintings (including Sadamasa Motonaga’s “Untitled” work from 1963, previously exhibited at MOMA’s 1965 watershed exhibition of Japanese post-war painting), and works by some of the most sought after artists in the ceramic art world today. FWG presents “Behind Paper Walls: Self-Printed Masterworks by Jun’ichiro Sekino” Dec. 3, 2010 to Jan. 14, 2011. This exhibition, featuring an impressive selection of works, many never before exhibited, provides a keen insight into this master artist who pushed the limits of the art of woodblock printmaking and adds a new dimension to his legacy.
