March 20, 2021 – On-going exhibit
Located in the far northwest corner of the contiguous United States, Seattle is oriented more to the Pacific than to Europe, and many of its artists looked to Asia in shaping the region’s singular form of modernism. See link for full information on this exhibit of issei and nissei art.

As an apprentice to a master Japanese gardener, Mark Bourne learned that the answer to understanding the art was in the gardens, not in any of the books that had been written. In this lecture, we will explore how to study the classical gardens of Kyoto through slides and explanation, and then see how to incorporate that art into our own gardens.
Mark Bourne was recognized as a master Japanese designer by the abbot of Kenninji Zen Temple after completing a full traditional apprenticeship to Yasuo Kitayama in Kyoto. His study included work in many historically significant gardens, including the Kyoto Imperial Palace, Katsura Imperial Villa, Kenninji, and others. Since 1999 Mark has built gardens as the owner of Windsmith Design, based in the Seattle area. http://www.windsmithdesign.com/
