In one week, the four-day Ikebana Show, the unique combination of fine art and flower arrangements that comes to The Art League Gallery every two years, will finally open! Next Thursday, artists from the Washington, DC Sogetsu School of Ikebana, one of the many schools of thought of the art of Japanese flower arranging, will come and create their installations before the brief exhibit opens at 6:00 pm.
Last month, the Sogetsu artists came by and selected the artwork they’ll use to pair with and inspire their arrangements. Here’s a sneak peek of a couple of pieces they chose, courtesy of the gallery:
We’ll have to wait until next week to see how it all comes together! You can read all about Ikebana and the events surrounding it in this blog post.
