It’s funny, you know, I would have never anticipated that I would someday do a call for art and have the theme of that call for art be the art of Tea. For me, tea has become almost a sacred experience. I find it comforting, I find it honest, I find it life-giving. It isn’t as harsh as coffee, it isn’t bad for you and it is calming.
If you google tea houses you will find a plethora of them. I remember being on vacation with my family and winding up in a tea house. It was terribly hot outside and we decided to get something to drink inside this charming little place. I fell in love instantly with the countless containers that held teas designed by the owners. They were loose and in jars. They were beautiful AND fragrant. I was in heaven. It was at that moment I knew my needs were simple. Give me a beautiful cup of tea and all seemed right with the world.
The Art of Tea was an effort to see what others thought of this drink. The seventeen artists who were accepted each had a very unique vision. I hope that you will join us during the opening. Many of the artists will be in attendance. Come, and celebrate, the Art of Tea.
