Bonsai Exhibition 18-19 May 2013
This exhibition of bonsai created by Australian artists reflects the inspirations and diversity of the art of bonsai as it has developed in Australia. That journey illustrates the traditional influences from Japan and China and emerging trends in the use of Australian plants as bonsai in a way that reflects our sense of place in the landscape.
Visitors to the exhibition are eligible for the lucky door prize, will be able to vote for their favourite bonsai and buy bonsai books, plants, pots and tools.
Public Exhibition of Bonsai is proudly supported by the ACT Government Community Centenary Initiatives Fund
The exhibition is being held in conjunction with a national convention titled The Australian Journey, incorporating sessions that reflect on the history of bonsai in Australia. The exhibition and convention are being hosted in Canberra to coincide with the centenary of Canberra celebrations. The full (including catering) cost for the two-day convention is $280. Further information on the convention is available at www.cbs.org.au/2013AABC.
