Join us for another fabulous weekend at Orientations with two of our favorite hosts, Jerry Janssen and Russ Young!

The historic Marsh Building was built in the 1920’s as a showcase for Asian art. On view during the weekend will be an extensive collection of antique Japanese Shigaraki pottery, as well as many unusual and fine tansu recently arrived from Japan. There will also be a sophisticated selection of contemporary Asian ink paintings, both Chinese and Japanese from the Roberta English Gallery. Pat Tseng will present a collection of her newest signature works with special attention given to pieces from her personal antique jade collection.

We will enjoy wine and hors d’oeuvres beginning at 5:30 p.m. on Saturday evening, followed by one of Jerry and Russ’s signature elegant sit-down dinners in the gallery.

On Sunday morning, we continue with a continental breakfast and a lecture by Roberta English giving us insight into the works on display. There will also be a presentation by Deputy Director of the Asian Art Museum, Dr. Robert Mintz, about the antique Shigaraki jars.

Transportation and accommodations are on your own. There are several hotels within walking distance of Orientations. It is highly recommended to book hotels at your earliest convenience! 

Come and join us for a very special weekend, and do your Christmas shopping early!
