North Charleston City Gallery Exhibit – Inja Cho
Inja Cho, from Kalamazoo, Michigan, presents, Rhythm of Life, a collection of abstract encaustic and oil paintings. Cho employed a unique and experimental method for each work in the series, combining the techniques of bold and free movements used for oil on canvas paintings and adding techniques of sculpture such as scraping, carving, and fusing of wax on the surface. The final outcome of this demanding process is an extremely expressive, complex, nuanced scene ostensibly in landscape.

Workshop - Flower Arranging: The Secret Language of Ikebana
Ikebana, the art of Japanese flower arrangement, is considered an art form in its own right alongside painting and sculpture. It is a representation of the Japanese spiritual philosophy that stresses harmony between man and nature. What distinguishes ikebana from Western forms of flower arrangement is the heavy reliance on negative space to create an asymmetrical, lively composition. Under the instruction of Kathy Huang, participants will complete two arrangements to take home: one in the ikebana style and one in the free style. Influenced by her grandmothers, who were master gardeners in Asia, Kathy Huang has unique training in cut flower arrangements of the Japanese Ikebana style. She has been inspired by her adventurous travels while living and working in the United States for the past 30 years and has studied under ikebana masters in Asia. Materials are provided.
Fee: $40, materials included. Registration closes August 1. Call 843-740-5854.
