The Art Complex Museum in Duxbury will offer a series of traditional Japanese Tea Ceremony Presentations on Sundays, June 24, July 29 and September 30 at 2:00p.m. The program will be given by Tea Master Glenn Sorei Pereira who was trained by the Urasenke School of Tea. He will explain the ceremony and answer questions.
The ceremony takes place on the museum grounds surrounded by a Japanese garden. It is presented in a tea hut designed by the Japanese artist Sano Gofu and built in Kyoto for the Weyerhaeuser family. Known as Wind in the Pines Hut, it is authentic except that two sides are left open for viewing the ceremony. It is one of
only a few such tea huts open to the public in New England. Folding canvas chairs are provided or visitors are invited to bring their own.
Admission to the public tea ceremony is free but seating is limited and available on a first-come basis. Guests are advised to dress with weather conditions in mind since this outside event is closely connected with nature. Arrangements have been made to hold the event inside the museum in case of inclement weather.
