【The Historic Hori Family Bath House at the Neely Mansion】~Community Friends Booth~

We would like to welcome back Neely Mansion and the Historic Hori Family Bath House to Japan Fair!

Back in 1930, the Hori family brought a tradition of Japanese life on the farm to the Neely property of the Green River Valley.

The 10’ by 16’ small wooden building was divided into two rooms for washing and bathing. The building was restored by the Neely Mansion Association in 2016, and can be seen behind the Neely Mansion.

Japanese families in the Green River Valley built small bathhouses for use after a hard day of labor on their farms. The newly restored Hori Bathhouse (furoba), constructed in 1930, is a one-story wood frame structure, measuring 10' by 16'.  The interior is divided into 2 rooms; the first room was used for laundry, and a soaking tub (furo) was located in the back room.

Located directly behind Neely Mansion, 12303 SE Auburn-Black Diamond Road, Auburn WA  98092.  Public tours of the gated Bathhouse, Mansion and gardens take place during Summer Tours and other events.  Please check our website or Facebook pages for dates and times.

【Darlene Dihel - Sumi Painting】~Arts and Culture Booth~

【Darlene Dihel ...
Darlene Dihel, welcome back to Japan Fair!

Sumi painting is an East Asian type of brush painting. Traditional sumi painting only uses blank ink, but still makes the pictures come to life. beautifully expresses the spirit of nature.

Adding in some color, Darlene Dihel beautifully expresses the spirit of nature with the strokes of her brush.

Come to Japan Fair 2017 and Darlene Dihel's booth to see her magnificent drawings!

Darlene, a native Washingtonian, is a retired teacher who spent half her career in the South Pacific (Guam and Kwajalein) with husband, Merle, and two children. She came full circle about 20 years ago, returning to the Pacific Northwest.

The love for SUMI-E, a Japanese word which means painting a picture with black ink, began over forty years ago following a few days in Japan. She began studying and painting sumi on her own until 1999 when she discovered the Puget Sound Sumi Artists organization, taking many classes from the group's masters. Darlene teaches sumi classes to all ages, enters shows and festivals, has solo shows, and does demonstrations. As well as studying the traditional sumi-e, she adds Asian watercolors to her work and creates sumi mixed media.

A painting session begins by grinding the sumi stick with water on a grinding stone to make black ink, and then making a dish of grey ink. The animal hair bamboo brush is dipped in water, grey ink, then black. Grasping the brush in the middle with arm off the table, basic calligraphy strokes are made on rice paper to create images. Whatever the final image, creating a work of art is an experience within itself, a journey recording a brief moment in time.

Studying and painting sumi is a constant in Darlene's life. Her goal is to improve as a sumi artist although she will always be "a student" in this spontaneous, simplistic, spiritual style of painting..
