20th Biennial Ikebana Exhibit

20th Biennial Ikebana Exhibit





The Art League is delighted to again welcome the Washington, DC branch of The Sogetsu School for our 20th Biennial Ikebana Show. Ikebana is a Japanese artform of sculptural flower arranging that highlights the coalescence of flora and vessels. Here, art dances with nature.

More about Sogetsu Ikebana:
Recognized as a sculptural form of art, Ikebana, has over 300 schools of thought. Sogetsu Ikebana is a three-dimensional artistic expression composed of flower and plant material arranged in a container. Sogetsu promotes an Ikebana of no limits, in which plant materials of any type may be used and displayed anywhere and in any circumstance. Sogetsu does not encourage students to emulate nature; they encourage students to use lines, hues, and masses provided by nature to inspire their own creations. Combining the arrangements with two and three dimensional artwork results in stunning, contemporary installations.
