Alchemy of Tea brings together a group of national artists inspired by tea. This unique and stunning collection of work provokes viewers to ponder the transformation of tea from its consumable and degradable form into art. Tea has been part of sacred rituals across the globe for centuries. The fragility and golden hues found in this collection project the historical and spiritual roots of tea, while each artist's subjects juxtapose a contemporary take on tea as a medium and muse. From installation to photography and porcelain to encaustic - this exhibition has something to inspire everyone. Featured artists include Barbara Bartlett, Bridget Conn, Elizabeth Alexander, Jennifer Coyne-Qudeen, Mari Omori and Rodney Thompson. Alchemy of Tea will be on exhibit September 13 through November 14.
Join us for the reception - September 13, 6:30-9 pm.*
