SoHo Host-Club’s Art Tea Party

Saturday, April 16 from 6:00 p.m. until 10:00 p.m.

Ouchi Gallery – 170 Tillary Street, Suite 105, Brooklyn

Admission: $20 (cash, check, credit cards accepted at the door)

The SoHo Host-Club, a chivalrous group of young men who specialize in mingling and engaging people in conversation at parties, has found a new home with Ouchi Gallery, a Brooklyn art gallery that displays work by contemporary Japanese artists.

The inaugural event in the group’s new location features award-winning Japanese artist Taichi Nezu, whose exhibition Life Connected by Invisible Thread (Layer) is currently running at Ouchi Gallery until April 17. Nezu will lead a hands-on workshop to create artisan postcards on fine Japanese paper.

The hosts will serve Harney & Sons teas and sweets on vintage fine china, and wine will be poured for those over 21. Maura of Our Mother’s Beads will sell her handmade designs, and there will be gift packages at the door and a raffle for original Japanese art canvases.

“Fancy dress” is encouraged for the festive gallery atmosphere.

The SoHo Host-Club formed in 2010 under the guidance of Alexandra Honigsberg and Kim Kindya. Modeled after Ouran High School Host Club, the group debuted at AniMiniCon.
