First Upstate New York Suiseki Exhibit, Rochester, New York

It was a first class show with over fifty stones. The show was held in the tropical bonsai greenhouse at Bill Valavanis' International Bonsai Arboretum on September 3-4, 2011 and was well attended both by suiseki aficinados as well as newcomers to bonsai who were attending Bill Valavanis' First Annual Open House.

Enjoy the video! It can be seen both here and at http://BonsaiInBuffalo.com where all of my bonsai videos featuring William Valavanis' bonsai garden and displays as well as my tool sharpening video can be viewed.

Thanks for sharing Roy. Fifty stones is a large number to distribute in a limited space. You captured them nicely. Thanks for pausing at the front of many individual stones at an effective elevation for viewing!

This is "snow peak mountain" close up, this is one of many stones Jane Schuster had on display. I was so taken with it that I not only photographed it but I sought her out to ask about it, we then spent the next half hour going through the rest of the exhibit, then outside to share some of Bills masterpiece trees together! She was one of the many wonderful people working the open house this weekend!

I'd like to thank all the members of the Suiseki Study Group of Upstate New York and all our visitors to our exhibit.

Roy's video is excellent and give a peaceful feeling to our exhibit. Unfortunately one of the finest suiseki was not in a good area for photographing and is not included in Roy's video. Here is photo of Jane Shuster's suiseki in Jerome Cushman's antique suiban.
