Maple Festival is finally here! To celebrate the start of this popular festival, we’re excited to welcome you to the opening reception for an eye-opening watercolor collection “A Year in the Japanese Garden” a collection of artwork by a group of artists from the Seattle Parks and Recreation's Dementia-Friendly Recreation program.
These artists participated in the ‘Arts in the Park’ Watercolor Painting program, a partnership with Elderwise, sponsored by Careforce. For 20 years, Elderwise has brought the peace and satisfaction of painting to people living with dementia. The exhibit is a rich and dynamic expression of the inspirations they received in the Seattle Japanese Garden. This program has been offered in the spring and fall for the past four years.
Join us on Thursday, October 3, 3pm-4:45pm in the Tateuchi Community Room. Admission to the garden is FREE after 1pm. Refreshments provided. The exhibit will be on display through the end of October.
