Ikebana is the Japanese art of arranging flower and plant materials, characterised by asymmetry of form which creates dynamic balance. The ancient roots of ikebana lie in the offering of flowers in Shinto shrines and sacred sites, as well as on the altars of Buddhist temples.

This exhibition celebrates the 60th anniversary of Victoria’s Sogetsu School of Ikebana, and features works by teachers and students from the School. Emphasis is placed on personal style, and creative and contemporary interpretation. Key ceramics from the Whitehorse Art Collection will feature as the vessel for some arrangements, with a re-theming of displays each week of the exhibition.
