Title: Nashville Bonsai Society Regional Show
Post by: Owen Reich on May 03, 2013, 11:16 PM
Hello All, Rodney Clemons and I will be the guest artists at an exhibition held June 29th and 30th at Cheekwood Botanical Garden in Nashville, TN.  Set-up will start at 8am on Friday and we'll also have late set-up Saturday morning from 8-10am. 

There will be both a General and Professional Division and I've already received commitments from a number of people and bonsai businesses.  Paul Katich (owner of Bellota Enterprises) of Jacksonville, FL will be there with an excellent assortment of bonsai containers along with a number of other vendors from all over the country; perhaps even a collector from Colorado.....  The exhibit will be professionally lit and set up in a way to appreciate the the bonsai in the best manner I can afford  ;D. 

I welcome everyone to attend and / or exhibit.  Please reply on here if you're coming or if you have any questions.

Thanks,
Owen Reich

Thanks for the plug Owen.

I am looking forward to coming up to Nashville next month and attending your show.  An yes, I will have a good selection of hand made bonsai containers with me when I come.

It should be a great weekend of bonsai.

See you there.

Cheers,
Paul

I have tentative approval from the boss lady.

Need any additional entries?  I could probably put something together.

Hi Owen. Do you know why the NBS website is still only showing events/schedule for 2012? Only after searching forums did I find this post you had for the 2013 show. Is there a schedule available for the show weekend? Are you involved in the NBS or just working this show? Thanks, I am looking forward to attending and maybe showing in the future.

I am the current president of Nashville's bonsai club and have some people working to re-make the website.  A Facebook page has been created but there are still some communication gaps to resolve.  We would love to have you attend.

Wow, thanks for the quick reply. I have seen lots of info about you in different places and admire your work. I will not only attend but likely join the NBS.

Set-up is pretty much done save a handful of bonsai.  This is the best year yet.  I've noticed a pronounced increase in quality of both bonsai and use of display elements in The South since I left for Japan.  Wonderful to see.  The kussmono are still a bit "hosta-heavy" but the thoughts are there  :).  It will be tough to pick a winner which is a good problem to have....
