I was invited to participate in an international traveling show while it is here in the United States and I hope you can come celebrate at the opening reception with me! The exhibit concentrates on a vessel to drink tea, the chawan, or tea bowl. Chawan: An International Exhibition features work from artists representing nine countries and has been traveling to museums and galleries around the world for the last few years. This Sunday, October 30 is the opening of the first stop in this country for an exhibit that has already seen Belgium, France, Korea, and Croatia and will head to Japan.
The reception is 1-4 at the Gorse Mill Studios Gallery at 31 Thorpe Road in Needham. There will be a demonstration of the Chinese tea ceremony by participating artist Chang kuei Wei at 2pm if you would like to see that as well. I hope you can make it! If not, the exhibit is up until November 27, and gallery hours are Monday-Friday, 11-5.
