Join us for an opening reception of the Japanese Garden's latest art exhibit, A Most Fortuitous Convergence, Seattle Japanese Garden, Fall 2013.  We will celebrate the artists on Saturday, September 19 from 2-4pm, with complimentary light refreshments.

The latest art show at Seattle Japanese Garden is a photography exhibit showcasing the juried works of students who participated in a  fall photography workshop, taught by Vashon Island based photographer Ray Pfortner.

This was the first in the series of photo workshops offered at the Garden by the City of Seattle, "at a most spectacular fall, in 2013, one of the finest, most vibrant foliage years at the Garden in memory combined with the perfect weather for photography - overcast, soft diffused light, fog, little wind" according to Pfortner.

There are 5 photographers exhibiting - Camille Lyver, Trudy Travis, Shankar Pal and Anthony Dixon and instructor Ray Pfortner.

The art exhibit will available for viewing during public open hours through November 30, 2015.  Entry to the exhibit, including during the opening reception, is free with garden admission.
