Beacon, NY



For Artist 18 or over


Things that are things

Or refer to other things:

A lonely tea cup,

A tall hat on a high shelf,

Stark shadows on gray pavement,

The moon as it passes before the sun.

Account for all of it!

And give form  

To the shapes that guide us home.

Mikiko Ino  President, Director, and Chairperson of KinoSaito Art Center

Mikiko Ino was born in Japan. Always inspired by the world of Art & Fashion she established the fashion buying consulting company, LLJ USA Inc. in 1990. She later moved to New York City where she continued to discover emerging designers and work with high-end designers like Oscar De La Renta, and introduced them to Japanese retailers. In 2007, Mikiko met and later married Kikuo Saito, a Japanese-born American abstract painter with ties to the Color Field movement and Lyrical abstraction. Following Saito’s death in 2016, she founded KinoSaito Art Center in 2018. Mikiko has given new life to the former St.Patrick school building, turning it into a paradise for art lovers which outlives its original purpose while retaining its historic features. The Center has become a special nexus, housing art galleries, a multipurpose performance space, two beautiful studios for rotating resident artists, a classroom for arts education and public programs.
