At the September meeting our guest speaker was Wayne Crothers, the Senior Curator of Asian Art at the National Gallery of Victoria. Wayne gave an engaging and informative presentation of developments in contemporary arts in Japan. His illustrated lecture was enjoyed by the 33 members who attended the meeting.

A demonstration on the theme of contemporary ikebana was given by Akemi Suzuki who created a sculptural work using 'unconventional materials' only.

Below are works created by some of the members on the theme of 'contemporary Ikebana'.
