Santa Monica’s Bergamot Station Arts Center – Santa Monica homes for sale

Japanese Paper Art
An early Saturday afternoon a couple weeks ago, MS and I headed to Santa Monica to take in some of the local art at Bergamot Station. On eight acres of land, over 40 different contemporary art galleries, design and architectural firms and the Santa Monica Museum of Art are housed in the largest art gallery complex and cultural center in Southern California.We started with a few small galleries that were open at 11am and wandered into the Hiromi Paper shop. Every nook in this store had something interesting to look at… paper lanterns with unique shapes and colors cascading from the ceiling, and sheets upon sheets of beautifully handcrafted papers.

I purchased some washi paper tape that donned cute cats and flowers on them along with other gift items. This was a shop I’d love to visit again and maybe even take a class or two to learn the art of book binding.
