Ohara Ikebana Exhibition
Saturday & Sunday, May 19 & 20, 2018 ē Garden Hours
Portland Japanese Garden, Portland, OR


What distinguishes ikebana from other approaches to flower arrangement is its asymmetrical form and the use of ďemptyĒ space as essential features of the composition. A sense of harmony among the materials, the container, and the setting is also crucial. Ikebana shares these aesthetic characteristics with traditional Japanese paintings, gardens, architecture, and design. Members of the Seattle Chapter of the Ohara School of Ikebana set the tone for spring with an array of exquisite designs on display in the Yanai Classroom. www.japanesegarden.org
