Three hundred people gathered at the Artist's Studio in the Foothills for their Art of Tea Show opening reception, Friday, August 28th. Each of four educational presentations on tea ceremony, teapot history and tea leaf reading were also well attended by enthusiastic guests seated in rows of chairs and stools in the studio's 2D classroom & gallery buffet area.
Guests enjoyed a fabulous display of teapots fashioned in ceramic & wood, and paintings and pastel drawings of spirited teapots and tea themed scenes. Exceptional teas, both hot and iced, gathered by Babette Donaldson, our local tea expert, on her many journeys around the world, were shared with guests, along with an impressive buffet of green tea ice cream, Russian tea cookies and many other sweet tea treats! The show will hang through October 2nd in the studio's Grass Valley gallery, open Monday - Friday, 10am-5pm, Saturday, 11am-4pm!
