The 2104 Nashville Regional Bonsai Expo will be held on July 12-13th at the Cheekwood Botanical Garden, in Nashville, Tennessee. Over 50 bonsai from the southeast will be displayed along with kusamono.

In addition to lecture/demonstrations by Jim Doyle and Young Choe, two kusamono classes will be conducted along with a collected Engleman spruce workshop. A bonsai refinement workshop will also be offered. Jim Doyle will conduct a critique of the displayed bonsai and Young Choe will critique the kusamono.

The general and professional division entries promise to have some great bonsai, as in the past events, from the region. Anyone wishing to enter a display in the professional division needs to either work with a bonsai professional regularly or be a professional bonsai artist. Bonsai from the general division will be eligible for the Best of Show Award. Please contact Owen Reich for entering all displays at firstname.lastname@example.org
Nashville Bonsai is the largest bonsai organization in central Tennessee and sponsor of the event, which will be held at the Cheekwood Botanical Garden in Massey Hall. The Nashville Regional Bonsai Expo is free with admission to the Cheekwood Botanical Garden. I look forward to making new friends as well as greeting long time friends at this exciting event. Join us for an enjoyable and educational weekend of bonsai with southern hospitality!
