Cotonoha Artspace & Cafe stimulates all senses

Date Posted: 2009-05-01

Cotonoha is a stylish café and gallery located on route 330 in Ginowan City. Owner Daryl Mitchell set out to create the perfect synthesis of food, art and music.

Daryl explained the thinking behind Cotonoha, “I enjoy art but it’s usually shown in a dry stale museum environment. What I wanted was to create a dynamic place where people can enjoy art along with good food and laid back music.”

The interior of Cotonoha incorporates elements of both tropical and modern Asian design. Comfortable teak furniture, subtle lighting and carefully positioned plants allow guests to relax, while the walls showcase the talents of Japanese and international artists.

From 2 till 6 Cotonoha has a café menu with a selection of soups, sandwiches and cakes. After 6, Cotonoha offers course dinners that are based around French and Italian cuisine. If you are just looking for dessert then check out the coffee and cake set or simply enjoy a quiet drink at the bar.

The exhibits on show change monthly and vary from paintings and photography through to ceramics.

During May, Cotonoha will be showing an exhibition by British travel photographer Chris Willson titled Visions of Japan. The exhibition takes the viewer on a visual journey from the snowy peaks of Hokkaido down to the beaches of Okinawa. Bold vistas and cute snow monkeys make this a trip the whole family can enjoy.

In June, American Holli Pitsch will show Fractured Fairy Tales & Vinyl Graffiti. Holli creates fantastical images through a mix of ink, paint and collage on found paper. The results are like a surreal journey through the looking glass that is reminiscent of Salvador Dali and Hayao Miyazaki.

Cotonoha is open 2pm to 11pm Tuesday thru Sunday. It is located on the 330 in Ginowan 2.3 kilometers south of Futenma Shrine. Free parking is available behind the gallery. More details on future exhibitions along with directions to Cotonoha can be found at the website www.cotonoha.com
