2012 UPSTATE NEW YORK BONSAI EXHIBITION

Post  William N. Valavanis on Mon May 21, 2012 1:23 pm

This past weekend members of the Bonsai Society of Upstate New York held their 39th exhibition at the Monroe Community Hospital (OLD location of the US National Bonsai Exhibitions) in Rochester, New York. The exhibition was well attended and as in the past our former president and now long-distance member, Joe Noga traveled from North Carolina to Rochester to professionally photograph the bonsai and display a few bonsai. The attached photos are my poor attempts, Joe's will make a DVD with his professional photos for our members.

Enjoy the photos, come to our 40th exhibition next year in mid-May. If you missed this show you can still see some of the finest bonsai in our country at the US National Bonsai Exhibition coming up soon (two weeks!) on June 9-10th in Rochester.

Bill, thanks for posting the photos.

The Japanese black pine that won the award is a fantastic tree...Bill posted a nice photo but it just doesn't do the tree justice. Fortunately it will be in the national exhibition.

My personal favorite was Harvey's smoke tree. Beautiful flowing trunk line and a species we don't see all that often. Covered with buds, I bet it will be quite a sight when they all open.
