Celebrate Asian Culture
Golden Lotus Foundation presents...
In celebration of Arts Month 2022, the Golden Lotus Foundation is inviting community members to participate in a series of events and activities designed to showcase Asian art and culture. Since 2011, the Golden Lotus Foundation has worked to catalyze a lively local scene centered around the experience of Asian art and cultural traditions, primarily from China, Japan, Korea, the Philippines, Vietnam, and India. For questions, email info@GoldenLotusFoundation.org.
October 2-8 (gallery hours: 719-520-9494)
Visit Hunter-Wolff Gallery during October 2-8 to view Raku pottery art pieces by local artists Tony Heslop, Marc Jenesel, and Mark Wong. Raku is a Japanese style ceramic ware made during the 16th century in Kyoto, Japan. The practice is characterized by the removal of the clay object from the kiln at the height of the firing and causing it to cool very rapidly. Raku ware was originally created for tea ceremonies.
