Stratford Gallery Opening

The opening of "The Sake Vessel: Contemporary Interpretations", The Stratford Gallery, Stratford-upon-Avon, England, on Saturday, November 16th, was a huge success. The sake tasting event and the gallery opening were well attended. Here are some images from the lectures and gallery opening.
