Sunday, October 1st, starting at 1 pm Shumei International Institute in Crestone welcomes you for an art demonstration with Japanese painter Koichi Yamashita. An art symposium with the artist will follow from 3 pm to 5 pm. This event is free to the public. 719-256-5284 for information.
Recently featured in “The Japan Times,” painter Koichi Yamashita is drawn to the mountains. His unconventional sumi-e ink paintings depict the vast beauty of the rocky landscape. So detailed, they may be mistaken for photographs. Mr. Yamashita must hike the mountain before he paints them. This February Mr. Yamashita quietly visited Crestone from his home in Japan. He hiked. He soaked up the beauty of this land. And then he returned home to paint. Please join us for this unique art experience.
