For our 2021 Wabi-Sabi exhibition, we are 100% in-person, including work submissions!
“…celebrating the simple, the rustic, the unassuming; the dignity of things imperfect,
uncontrolled and incomplete; the transient beauty of the natural world…”
When seeking to understand Wabi-Sabi, it is helpful to contemplate the idea that beauty is inherent in a simple object, which in turn evokes a quiet, thoughtful mood and atmosphere. The emphasis of this exhibit will be not on the final perfected form of the work, but on how well pieces reflect a sense and feeling of this elusive concept. In particular, focus will be on the imaginative use of natural materials that may include found objects.
Visit the Wabi-Sabi page of our website for inspiration & resources.
Juried this year by Marcia Lieberman, artist and Buddhist scholar from the SF Zen Center.
