The world bonsai community will once again be enriched by the display of bonsai gathered from across the United States at the 5th U.S. National Bonsai Exhibition, September 10 – 11, 2016, in Rochester, NY.
Like Japan’s Kokufu Bonsai Exhibition, people from around the world attend the U.S. National Bonsai Exhibitions to appreciate and study the diversity of the unique and distinctive species displayed by accomplished bonsai artists from across the United States.
Towering bonsai from the Pacific Northwest, rugged bonsai from the Rocky Mountains, and tropical bonsai from the Southern swampy regions will be displayed along side weathered bonsai from the Southwestern deserts and refined deciduous bonsai from the Northeast.
The 2016 exhibition promises to exceed past shows in both scope and quality. The 5th U.S. National Bonsai Exhibition will include an expanded Invitational Suiseki Exhibit, feature demonstrations and critiques lead by bonsai masters from around the world, and offer one of the largest bonsai specific vendor areas available at an event of this kind.
