|Description:||An art exhibit by Elaine Jo/Ichiyo School of Ikebana is on display at the Sandy Springs Library until November 30, 2014 at 395 Mt. Vernon Highway, Sandy Springs, Georgia 30328.
Ikebana (literally translated "Living Flowers") is an ancient floral art of Japan which has captured the attention of people throughout the world because of its beautiful, graceful lines and pleasing forms.
Traditional forms emphasize the natural beauty and dynamic energy of flowers and plant life by making clear their true features in an ideal state. All of the materials of nature are used in combination; flowers, trees, leaves, grasses, branches, etc. When seen close up in compositional form, a depth of beauty and vigor may be revealed which the eye usually passes over when viewing the same material in its natural environment.
Artist: Elaine Jo is a flower arranging teacher, demonstrator, and exhibitor of the Ichiyo School of Ikebana. She holds an Executive Master Degree. Ms. Jo served on the Board of Directors of the International Division of the Ichiyo School and was correspondent director for overseas members when she lived in Japan. She edited a guidebook for members and collaborated on writing textbooks for the correspondence course of the school. She lived in Japan from 1959-63, 1968-89.
