The members of the Ikebana Teachers Association of Southern California will display their Shōgatsu flower arrangements from Dec.31st as part of the 2023 New Year celebration. This exhibition lasts only 4 days and is open to the public with free admission from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the George J. Doizaki Gallery.
The current organization represents accredited teachers with mastery of their practice from three major Southern California ikebana schools, Ikenobo (池坊), Sogetsu (草月), and Ohara (小原).
To celebrate the New Year, the Ikebana teachers will use special seasonal materials, such as Pine, Bamboo, Plum, Chrysanthemum, Camellia, Narcissus, Orchid, Peony, or Nandina berry. Flowers add gorgeous colors to the New Year atmosphere and invite good luck and happiness.
