This fall, Yume is featuring the paintings of Phoenix Ikebana master Ping Wei. Wei frequently exhibits paintings, ceramics, and wood sculptures of his own design, as well as Ikebana arrangements, throughout Arizona.
Born in China, Ping Wei moved to the U.S. in 1992. Before immigrating, he studied Tui Na (Chinese massage/body work) and today operates a healing arts studio in Phoenix, Arizona, where he is also a noted ceramic artist and master of Japanese flower arranging, or Ikebana. Commenting on his creative work, he says: “I express myself artistically for my own personal growth and to have a better and balanced life. I believe everybody is an artist, but you need to find it from inside, and through nurturing.”
The exhibition will commence with an artist reception on October 5 from 5-7 pm. Because the reception is being held after business hours, Yume’s gardens and Museum will NOT be open to visitors at that time.
The paintings will be on display until December 31, and all paintings are for sale.
