Gallery Mugen is having a party on Saturday, December 6th, from 11 a.m.–5 p.m. to ring in the holiday season. We'll feature new work from Akira, gorgeous hand dyed and block printed accessories and home furnishings from BZDesign, and festive Yuzu Patisserie sweets to sample and purchase. Here’s a taste of what to expect:
Fukubukuro, or “Good Fortune Bags.” Fukubukuro is a holiday tradition in Japan -- stores offer bags with secret items for sale, customers take their chances as to what “good fortune” they will discover within. Mugen will offer mystery parcels which include selected ceramic works by Akira and treats from Yuzu Patisserie. Only six will be available. First come, first served!
1:00 pm Akira will conduct a tea tasting, featuring a “tea flight” of his personal recommendations. You’re invited to sample varieties and flavors you’ve never tried before and perhaps discover a new favorite. Dobra Teashop teas will be featured.
3:30 pm In house concert featuring Akira on banjo and shamisen, with special guest Julia Weatherford on cello.
So, come on down and help us celebrate -- we look forward to seeing you on the 6th!
