We focus on artist works with the steadfast development, also support local artists.
On the concept of “open gallery”, we promise to provide everyperson the place to sensitively accept a flow of the times, and to grow up new creation.

In 1977, Toshiaki Yamakawa founded Gallery Heki, in Ashikaga city, Tochigi, Japan.
It moved to Tori5chome area in the city in 1979. We started to hold exhibitions that mainly consist of our collections, in addition, to deal in  jewelries by especial jewelry artists.
On the 30th anniversary of the foundation, Gallery Heki moved in 2007 to its present location, due to the need for holding lager scale special or planned exhibitions.
