Welcome to Sogetsu San Francisco Bay Area Branch. We are celebrating 40 years of presenting the art of Sogetsu Ikebana to our community and countless visitors. Through the Branch’s programs, we hone our members’ artistic skills, ever mindful of the words of Sogetsu’s founder, Sofu Teshigahara (1900 – 1979), that “Ikebana is a formative art” which stresses individual creativity. Through our biennial flower shows, we present the many varied styles of Sogetsu Ikebana.
Save the Date!! August 23, 2014
On August 23rd, we will have potluck luncheon and meeting in preparation for ArtScape 2014. Pauline Koha Pezzolo will coordinate the luncheon. Elan Soshun Rosenquist will explain the show design. Yoshiko Hogetsu Williams will assist in the discussion of techniques and mechanics; a mini workshop. Bring any questions or concern that you have about your planned exhibition pieces to the meeting. Enjoy food and friendship, as well!
