FIRST NIPPON SUISEKI EXHIBITION
« on: January 09, 2014, 08:01 AM »
The FIRST "Nippon Suiseki Exhibition" sponsored by the newly reorganized Nippon Suiseki Association will be held at the Tokyo Metropolitan Art. Museum on February 9-13, 2014

Kunio Kobayashi the new president of the Nippon Suiseki Assoiation and is assisted by Seiji Morimae. That's exciting news. This will be the largest suiseki exhibition and the first in the Tokyo Metropolitan Art Museum, held during part 2 of this year's Kokufu Bonsai Exhibition. They will have approximately 200 susiseki on display and about 25 tokonoma display as well. Many of the most famous suiseki in Japan will be exhibited.

Sean Smith, Ron Maggio and I will each have a JAPANESE suiseki displayed. An exhibition book should be available during the exhibit. I'm excited, not because I'm an exhibitor, but because of the new blood in the Japanese suiseki community. Having a suiseki exhibition in the museum is a first and will help to promote and give the recognition the art needs and deserves.

Why the distinction.

For this exhibition, ONLY Japanese Suiseki will be displayed. This is an important historic exhibition and is a direct result of two new leaders of The Nippon Suiseki Association that Bill mentioned. I am excited to view and study this exhibition soon!

Correction: Kunio Kobayashi is the new chairman of the Nippon Suiseki Association, not the president.

I'll have the 200 odd page full color exhibition book for sale and ready for shipping from Rochester, NY on February 12th.
