Join us for another fabulous weekend with two of our favorite hosts, Jerry Janssen and Russ Young! As most of you know, the historic Marsh Building was originally built in the 1920s as a showcase for Asian art. On view this weekend will be a spectacular collection of antique bronzes, animal shaped Japanese incense burners (koro), Japanese and Korean tiger paintings, and a group of Western Han dynasty (206 BCE - 24 CE) pottery—jars and granaries. All of the Japanese pieces are from the late Edo (1603 - 1868) or early Meiji (1868 - 1912) periods.

We will enjoy wine and hors d’oeuvres beginning at 5:30 p.m. on Saturday evening,...
