Exhibition catalog for Tea Bowl: Imperfect Harmony, a traveling exhibition. "These tea bowls, with their intimate scale and individual personalities, simultaneously offer an appreciation of the past and the contemporary. The subtle beauty of traditional-style bowls contrasts with the more exuberant contemporary idiom, raising an awareness of the role that art has, and can play, in everyday life. As we approach the millennium in an age of mass production, consumption, and get-it-to-go attitudes, the words of Kakuzo Okakura are still relevant, "Do we not need the tea room more than ever?"
Today the art world is rich and diverse with regional as well as national art centers. As in the past, art is alive and well in Utah. The show Ten Utah Painters invites us to see and experiece what some of Utah's best contemporary artists are doing. Their paintings invite us to look and to enjoy but also to learn and open up our visual senses to a broader vista.

The object then goes beyond a work of art and becomes a carefully defined artifact which frces the eyse to contront its absolute reality.
