Regrettably and after discussion, the Board of Directors of Ikebana San Antonio voted to dissolve the organization. The action by its Board was done voluntarily and unanimously as it is faced with another year of untenable conditions to restart and continue what was an enjoyable seven-year endeavor to learn about ikebana and the associated Japanese arts. At this time, a non-profit corporation certificate of termination will be filed with the Texas Secretary of State. Since 2013, members and guests have enjoyed, learned and shared ikebana in a true gathering of friends. All those friends and events will be sorely missed by me.
Ikebana San Antonio (ISA) is an independent Texas non-profit corporation established to promote and practice the art of Japanese flower arrangement and associated Japanese culture within the San Antonio community. It is open to anyone who is interested in learning about the fine art of flower arrangement whether as a guest or a member. ISA demonstration and workshop events are conducted on the 1st Thursday of each month (check calendar of events) at the San Antonio Garden Center. ISA exhibits at the Asian New Year Festival at the Institute of Texan Culture in San Antonio; participates in the Summer Junior Gardener Camp with introductory workshops at the San Antonio Botanical Garden; is a source of ikebana-related information and upcoming events throughout Texas; and is a non-federated member of the San Antonio Garden Center.
Our Mission Statement is to learn and appreciate all styles of ikebana and associated Japanese arts through the beauty and display of flowers.
We meet at the San Antonio Garden Center which is located at 3310 N. New Braunfels Avenue, San Antonio, Texas 78209
