Saturday & Sunday, September 7-8, 2013
Everyone is invited to visit the Autumn Open House & Sale. Formal indoor bonsai displays as well as masterpiece bonsai in the garden will be available appreciation, study and inspiration. Come see the new bonsai which have been created this year as well as older established specimen, many of which have been refined.
The new automatic watering system, both drip and spray, is working well for the sales area bonsai and nursery stock. Bonsai, pre-bonsai, suiseki, containers, tools, books and supplies will be on sale.
Award winning bonsai artists Harvey Carapella, Marc Arpag and Wm. N. Valavanis will be presenting advanced bonsai demonstrations daily at 11am and 2 pm. Each one of these skilled artists will clearly show their techniques and answer appropriate questions. One of my demonstrations will be on creating a Hinoki cypress forest, perhaps on an unusual kind of flat bog iron stone. Audience interaction is welcome for these informal programs.
The Suiseki Study Group of Upstate New York will be having the 3rd exhibit during the Open House & Sale. Approximately fifty suiseki belonging to members will be on display. Suiseki in daiza as well as in suiban will be on exhibit with many unusual companion plantings.
Suiseki lectures will be presented on Saturday 10am by Marc Arpag and on Sunday 10am by Ron Maggio.
