Program 2016 - 2017
Saturday May 6th, 2017
For the last meeting this year we have visited the Japanese garden in Clingendael estate in The Hague. It was a beautiful day, so the participant could enjoy the many profusely flowering azalea in their vivid pink and red colors. The wisteria was almost in full bloom and the buds only needed an extra few hours of sunshine before they also would bloom, as well as the rododendrons in the park. After the lunch, where we toasted on a succesfull Chapter # 215 year, in Brasserie Berlage (named after the famous Dutch architect) we visited the special exhibition "Porcelain with Character" in the nearby Haags Gemeentemuseum. The exhibition beautifully showed the meaning of various depicted pictures and Chinese characters and their added extra meanings. Often they refer to old stories known to many Chinese, or wishes the onlooker good fortune and happiness, a fenomenon we often encounter in Japanese art too.
It was a lovely and interesting day, at which we look back with pleasure.
The board thanks you for your participation in the last season. The board wishes you all a good summer and hopes to see you on the 30th of August 2017 for the first meeting of the new Chapter #215 season.
