 FWG 11th Annual Holiday Sale in-Gallery and Online Dec. 1-24

Chicago, IL — Everyone looking for a blend of the traditional and unique for  holiday gifts should check out Floating World Gallery (FWG) this holiday season. FWG is the perfect location for great gift ideas to fit every budget.  Their 11th Annual  Holiday sale runs from Dec. 1 through Dec. 24, Tuesdays through Saturdays from 1-5 p.m.  Visit the gallery located at 1925 N. Halsted St. or visit the selection online (  

The sale features a wide selection of modestly priced prints by well known and well respected artists. Priced at $300 or less, these prints make ideal gifts for collectors and novices alike. The Exhibition includes works from nearly 100 different artists, including Gekko, Inagaki, Mori, Sekino, Shoson, Watanabe, Toshi Yoshida and Yoshitoshi. To further assist you with your holiday shopping, FWG has created a special search feature  to help locate snow and winter themed prints on our site. To use this feature, go to the “search by subject” box at the top right section of our website. Once there, use the pull-down menu to click on either the “winter” or “winter Hasui” link. This search feature also displays items alphabetically (which is why we gave the 22 Hasui snow scenes their own category) and will only be available through the end of the year.
Japanese woodblock prints can add a special sparkle to any holiday tree with original woodblock prints mounted in a seasonal ornamental frame.  These charming works of art create elegant and tasteful business or hostess gifts ranging in price from $35 to $55.  FWG is also a great place to find a piece for that serious art collector on your list.  

For the Sekino collectors and bibliophiles  consider our new catalog,  “Behind Paper Walls: Early Works and Portaits by Jun’ichiro Sekino.”  Regularly priced at $50, FWG is offering the catalogue at the introductory price of $50 through Christmas.

FWG, located at 1925 N. Halsted St. 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 private collectors and institutions the highest quality works of art.  FWG 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.
