Nashville Bonsai Society Regional Show: July 11-13th
« on: April 03, 2014, 09:53 PM »
The annual Regional Show in Nashville, TN at Cheekwood Botanical Gardens will host Jim Doyle of Nature's Way and Young Choe; a kusamono artist trained by Mansei-en former apprentice Keiko Yamane.  There will be 50 spaces available for displays and this year, a special area for kusamono display as the main display element.  Jim Doyle will lead a workshop on collected Engleman Spruce ($220 which includes a nice tree), Young Choe will lead two separate kusamono workshops (one Saturday and one Sunday )@ $75 each. This will include all material including purpose-grown plants and nice containers.  I will have a bonsai refinement workshop @ $75 person.  There will be some great vendors as well. 

If you'd like to bring bonsai to exhibit or sign up for any of the workshops, please PM me.  If you're going to attend in any capacity, let everyone know!

The exhbition in Nashville is rapidly approaching.  I hope to see many of you there.  Jim Doyle, Young Choe, and I will have demonstrations, workshops, and critiques (the latter of other people because we are infallible)  :).

The most important thing about bonsai and your obsession with it is to have fun!  The event in Nashville always has a lot of camaraderie and laughs to go along with the learning.  Bill Valavanis and Jim Doyle will be vending here for their first time along with 13 other vendors.  If anyone asks, I'll post the vendor list. 

New backdrop color, no crazy lighting, and I'll be quiet for once.  Cheekwood will have a number of exhibitions in the museum including a Japanese artist's bamboo sculptures.  Cheekwood Botanical Garden is worth a visit in its own right.

Hope to see you all there.

American Bonsai Society Book Store
International Bonsai (Bill Valavanis)
Natures Way
Glass Art by Jacob
Kusa Farm
Bonsai Unearthed (me)
Cedarbog Bonsai
Lynnwood Gardens
Bellota Enterprises (Ceramic artist Paul Kattich)
MC Squared Pottery
Fedducia's Bonsai
Turnbull Creek Bonsai
Matsu Bonsai

It will be a solid vendor area and if anything like last year, a notable exhibition.  Last year's show was the best in the Southeast in overall bonsai quality.  Next year, there will be a Suiseki Exhibition :).

I'll be there too!

Just finished grooming my two display trees and also selecting the proper display tables, accessories and possible scrolls.

Packing tomorrow afternoon and leaving early on Thursday morning.
