Though there was some chaos and confusion before the start, the Ikebana arrangements came out fabulously in the end. The exuberance of our Sogetsu ladies were seen clearly in their creations. Sadly, I was unable to see the first lot of arrangements "live", as I was laid up in bed, but the photos that wer taken by Chitra's daughter was some consolation!
The exhibition was part of a consumer fair sponsored by Dinamalar, and was held at the YMCA grounds Royapettah. A temporary structure was set up, complete with airconditioning. The air conditioner wires though, added some extra "lines" to various creations, as you will see!
This is just a sample of some of the wonderful creations. Please do take a look at all the arrangements on the FlickR page.
Our thanks to ABK-AOTS Dosokai and their team for coordinating and working out all the nitty gritty for the exhibition.
