In honour of Asian Heritage Month, Semiahmoo Arts is taking part in the Interconnected Project by presenting Encounters – Asian Fusion, an online exhibition which brings together 18 participating artists, all of whom are members of the charity organization. Encounters – Asian Fusion tells the tale of the artists’ connection with the Pan-Asian culture.

Among the many artworks featured in Encounters are paintings by Amy Lee which depict bounty and prosperity and are inspired by the Cantonese culture. Roxsanne Tiernan’s works are also on display. Roxsanne’s images are the result of her creative manipulation of the traditional Japanese papers commonly known as Washi papers. Born and raised in Tehran, Iran, Azadeh Razaghi’s pottery takes inspiration from Persian art and poetry and her work, Vessel of Love is included in Semiahmoo Art’s expansive gathering of works.
