Exhibition catalog

Post  Robert Taylor on Fri Sep 16, 2016 6:30 pm

I've got to get the Exhibition catalog.  Photos weren't allowed and because I was ill, I only had 3 hours to take in the entire display, concessions area, and parts of a couple of the demonstrations.  I noticed a lot of the well known bonsai celebs. everywhere I went.  I didn't see Walter but I know he'd been to the West Coast show earlier and a lot of those folks had some fantastic trees on exhibit in this show(even some of the same).  It's got to rank among the best shows of Bonsai ever assembled in the US.  A very good quality display of Sueiseki was also presented and some of the well known US stone collecting "experts" were there and talked about their entries.  I'm totally inspired! I just hope I can recover(been told that I can't lift over 10 lbs) and get back to actually doing some work on my trees. Bill Valavanis just had heart surgery less than 2 weeks before the show.  He had a great crew helping him out and I'm lucky to have been around them enough to appreciate their guidance and always warm friendship. I can say the same for my Bonsai friends in Buffalo and those I met when I visited my daughter when she lived in San Francisco. All just wonderful people to be with! Love you!

FYI I found this at Bill's web site:5th U.S. National Bonsai Exhibition Album
