Time for “Tea” – an Internationally Juried Ceramics Exhibit


The beautiful ceramic works in this month’s “Tea” exhibit mark a first for The Art League: it was internationally juried from hundreds of digital submissions of wares associated with drinking, preparing, and presenting tea. John Neely, a ceramic artist and teacher, chose from digital submissions from 200 artists from the United States and Canada.

In the end, he selected 47 pieces created by 33 artists from 19 states and Canada. Including cups, bowls, teapots, and everything else to do with tea, the pieces exhibit a wide variety of styles and sensibilities.

Later this month, artists from the Washington, DC branch of the Sogetsu school of Ikebana — the Japanese art of flower arranging — will be filling the rest of the gallery with their arrangements to complement the ceramics exhibit. Come see “Tea” (now through June 3) and the 14th Biennial Ikebana Show (May 31 – June 3) and quench your (metaphorical) thirst for art!
