Ikebana, the traditional art of Japanese flower arrangement, draws attention to the beauty in nature. Refined over centuries, it uses materials not considered in Western flower arranging traditions, such as withered leaves, seed pods and branches. The sculptural displays celebrate artforms in nature through the creative use of asymmetry and negative space to emphasise shape, line, and form.
For over twenty years, Toowoomba Sogetsu School has presented an annual exhibition of their creations at Toowoomba Regional Art Gallery. With a focus on local and native materials, members Netta Obst, Margaret Eiser and Dorothy Herrmann create arrangements that respond to the season and environment, challenging themselves to combine new methods and materials to push the boundaries of the artform.
The Gallery is proud to showcase their work during the Carnival of Flowers celebrations.
