The Lakeshore Retirement Community welcomes neighbors for Asian art exhibit.

Growing up in the Northwest, I have always felt a connection to Asian people.

Travelogue, the third exhibit in a three-part art series exploring Asian cultures, opens at The Lakeshore on Wednesday, September 24 at 4:30pm with a gala and artists’ talk.

Travelogue features contemporary Asian art inspired by artists’ recent travel to Cambodia, China, Japan, Laos, Thailand and Vietnam. In addition to a one-hour artists’ talk from 5:30PM to 6:30PM about the work on display, the opening gala for Travelogue includes live Gamelan music, wine and hors d’oeuvres.

The opening gala for Travelogue is open to all who kindly RSVP in advance at 206-772-1200. More information at http://www.eraliving.com/communities/lakeshore.

“Travelogue, the final art exhibit in our series exploring Asian cultures, encompasses what is happening today in the Far East,” says The Lakeshore Curator, June Sekiguchi. “With such a large Asian American community here in Seattle, it is only fitting that we explore today’s Asian experiences through the eyes of artists.”

In 2013, residents at The Lakeshore expressed desire to learn about Asian culture and committed to studying Asian and Asian American experiences throughout 2014.

“Growing up in the Northwest, I have always felt a connection to Asian people,” says The Lakeshore Resident Marian Blakney. “That is why I’m so interested in always learning more; for me, it’s about connecting with my friends and learning more about them.”

With beautiful views of Mt. Rainier and Lake Washington, The Lakeshore offers a warm, vibrant lifestyle, an array of amenities, active life-enrichment programs, and exceptional Independent Living and Assisted Living care.
