One of this year's exhibitors is the Austin, Texas-based gallery, Lotus Asian Art and Antiques. I can't seem to get loti out of my mind this week. There was this Chinese ink drawing in the Met's collection plus the amazing views of Lotusland, the wondrous botanical garden near Santa Barbara, captured in Lisa Eisner's short film for Tory Burch.
BTW, on Saturday, March 8, at 2 p.m., Hutton Wilkinson will visit Lotusland to share thoughts on the unconventional garden's founder, Ganna Walska, and her friendship with Tony Duquett. The talk's theme is Enemies of the Average.
