The Art of Tea

Floral Infusion by Suzan Ok Shumate and Sue Shumate

Step into a world where art intersects with tea. Through The Art of Tea exhibit at Del Ray Artisans gallery, artists explore the culture of tea, a drink that dates back thousands of years to China’s Shang Dynasty. Channeling their inner Zhou Fang, Matisse, Cassatt, and van Rijsselberghe, artists depict themes and stories surrounding this aromatic beverage. From tea cups and tea pots to the Mad Hatter or Boston Tea Party, this exhibit intrigues and delights, like an herbal infusion on a sunny morning. It is on view through June 2; 2704 Mount Vernon Avenue, Alexandria, Virginia.

 

Enjoy the weekend!
