A new exhibit at Princeton Day School is set to open Feb. 11.
Wabi-Sabi is set to be displayed Feb 11 through March 7 at the Anne Reid ‘72 Art Gallery, 650 Great Road, Princeton.
A luncheon with the artists is set for 12:30 to 1:30 p.m. and a cocktail reception is set for 6:30 to 8 p.m. Feb. 22 at the gallery.
The exhibition features work from two faculty members, Stephanie Stuefer and Chris Maher.
Cermics teacher Stuefer and sculpture and furniture design teacher Maher, collaborated to create an exhibition using works of wood and clay. The works are based on the Japanese principles of wabi-sabi, which is about accepting imperfection and embracing asymmetry and irregularity.
“The work embodies our own American interpretations of this Japanese concept, as we pay homage to the ancient traditions,” the artists said in a statement.
Gallery Director Jody Erdman said the gallery will be transformed into a Japanese tea room. Younger students will have the opportunity to use dried herbs to make their own tea, while older students will learn about relaxation techniques and exotic teas in the space.
Wab-Sabi is set to be open 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday and by appointment on the weekends.
