Saturday, July 15, 12-6pm
A special reception in honor of our visiting artists will take place from 4-6pm with Japanese-inspired hors d'oeuvres and refreshments. All flower arrangements will be available for purchase. This exhibition will be on view in the gallery from 12-6pm.
Ikebana, a highly respected cultural art form in modern-day Japan, dates back over 500 years. While conventional flower arrangements emphasize flowers’ colors and blooms, ikebana pays attention to the overall line and form of all plant material used and emphasizes minimalism and asymmetry. Ikebana also reveres the sacred relationship between humans and nature with the flower arrangement usually practiced in a silent and meditative state.
