Ryuseiha Ikebana Exhibition

What distinguishes ikebana from other approaches to flower arrangement is its asymmetrical form and the use of “empty” 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. The Garden is pleased to welcome the Ryuseiha Ikebana Exhibition, showcasing an array of exquisite arrangements.
