Like  the famous Ryoanji rock garden in Kyoto, the Southwest desert is nature's rock garden on a grand scale, and without the crowds and the noise, a place for quiet contemplation. Yet it is also unforgiving and requires constant mindfulness with all the senses fully engaged. The contradiction creates a compelling tension and resonance that draw artists to New Mexico. Touching Stone explores the synergy between Japanese and Southwestern aesthetics. We hope you will find your visit enjoyable and rewarding.
