Japanese Tea Ceremony Presentation

Japanese Tea Ceremony Presentation

Glenn Sorei Pereira will conduct this first in a series of three public ceremonies offered by the Art Complex Museum. Mr. Pereira was trained by the Urasenke School of Tea and is an instructor of Urasenke. The program will be conducted in one of the very few tea huts in New England, called Shofan, Wind-in-the-Pines Hut. Designed by the Japanese artist Sano Gofu, it was built in Kyoto and reassembled at the museum in 1975. It is authentic except that two sides are open for viewing.  Because museum founders Carl and Edith Weyerhaeuser were so impressed with the importance of the tea ceremony, they wanted to include a tea hut in the museum’s collection of Asian art. Mr. Pereira, assisted by his students, will explain the ceremony and answer questions. Utensils used for the tea are exquisite and span four centuries.  The ceremony, itself, is a quiet, simple ritual based on hospitality. The program is supported primarily by the Carl A. Weyerhaeuser Family Charitable Trusts, by gifts from friends of the museum and, in part, by the Massachusetts Cultural Council.
