Our garden is brought to life by the creatures that inhabit it. From the blue heron to the kingfisher to the ducks, birds of all kinds are a constant presence between spring and fall, and their presence is an important part of the ever changing seasonal display.
We are pleased to host our first exhibit with artist Molly Hashimoto, a local artist whose works include paintings and woodblock prints inspired by nature. The author of Colors of the West: An Artist's Guide to Nature's Palette, Molly is a dedicated teacher in addition to being an artist herself, and in her latest book she takes a fresh approach of using color as a starting point for artistic exploration in an open air setting. The exhibit will include her block prints inspired by the Seattle Japanese Garden.
Join us as we celebrate Molly's new exhibit in the Tateuchi Community Room with an opening reception from 4:00-5:45 p.m. There will be a demonstration of block printing by Molly during the reception. Light refreshments will be served.
On Free First Thursdays, garden admission is FREE from 3 p.m. to closing.
Molly Hashimoto's Block Print Exhibit will be on display in the Tateuchi Community Room through the month of September.
