BSOB at the Melbourne, Florida USA "Masters of Art Show."

Post  Rob Kempinski on Tue Oct 06, 2009 3:55 pm



Last weekend our club held its Bonsai extravaganza at the Melbourne Florida "Masters of Art" show in downtown Melbourne. What a success. According to the show organizers our display was the hit of the show, had the most people around it and created the most buzz. We were invited back (always a good sign) and will be given the same prime real estate position in the middle of the event It was quite a treat to be hanging out with painters, sculptors, writers and photographers.

The weather was fantastic, the people watching excellent and the excitement in the club palatable.



Here myself and Chuck Dear wonder how we moved that big buttonwood "Dantes Inferno."



A complete report is on my blog.

No, but very funny. We raffled a bougy (nice one at that) and not the buttonwood, but I did have an offer on the buttonwood. It was few 0's off though.

I just checked this out on your blog, and apparently commented in the wrong post ...DOH!

Anyway, I am glad it was such a success.cheers Bonsai should, IMHO, be considered fine art! Bringing good exposure of our art form to the public deserves high marks. Perhaps other clubs will take your idea also? That would be great too. Wink

Great job!

And labeled Divas from above. Can't control your surroundings when out in the wild.

Or as Maxwell Smart used to say "Would You Believe Lens Foreshortening?"

This is the kind of exposure bonsai needs.

You Floridians are definitely advancing the art of bonsai in the US. Keep up the good work...
