I first met Mary Higuchi a few years ago at the popular Henry Fukuhara Manzanar Watercolor Workshop. To note that Mary is a very special person is simply an understatement. Mary’s dedication and efforts (as well as that of many others) have been instrumental in contributing to the hugh success of Henry’s annual Manzanar watercolor workshops.

Therefore, it is an extreme pleasure to feature Mary as a Guest Artist on this blog. Mary will be one of the many fine watercolorists who will be attending the 10th Annual Henry Fukuhara Manzanar Watercolor Workshop the weekend of May 5th & 6th, 2007. Mary’s work is also part of the current Henry Fukuhara Workshop watercolor exhibition open to the public at the Manzanar Interpretive Center now though May 6th, 2007.

Sunday, April 29th, the City of Torrance Cultural Arts Commission honors Mary and six others at the Torrance Cultural Arts Center. Mary is recognized for the 2007 Visual Arts category. Others who are recognized include Hanmi Korean Dance Academy (Dance), James Banim (Music), Judith Gerber (Literary Arts), The Shields Family (Drama), Kathleen Jensen (Arts Education), and Betty Holland (Kathy Geissert Award for Outstanding Dedication to the Arts).

Way to go, Mary! I look forward to another great Henry Fukuhara Watercolor Workshop experience. I’ll also be looking for your excellent watercolors! See you in less than a week!

Mary can be reached at (310) 530-3435.

Canyon De Chelly Detail

Canyon de Chelly sustains a living community of Navajo people, who are connected to a landscape of great historical and spiritual significance. Canyon de Chelly is unique among National Park service units, as it is comprised entirely of Navajo Tribal Trust Land that remains home to the canyon community.
