The 3rd Winter Bonsai Silhouette Expo will be held on December 5-6, 2015 in Kannapolis, North Carolina, near Charlotte. The beautiful building, complete with marble floors and rotunda is part of the North Carolina Research Campus.
More than seventy fine quality bonsai from throughout the south east will be on display, complete with companion plantings and display tables. Each artist is provided with one eight foot table and its up to them to create a bonsai composition.
Lecture demonstrations by William N. Valavanis, Owen Reich and John Geanangle & Ken Duncan will take place throughout the weekend. The informal atmosphere provides great close up views as well as questions from the audience.
On Sunday morning William N. Valavanis will lead exhibitors through the displays critiquing the bonsai and compositions. Constructive comments on the trees, training, species, containers, display and more will be offered and exhibitors are welcome to join in with questions or comments.
Eleven vendors will have twenty six tables full of bonsai, pre-bonsai, containers, tools, supplies and more to enhance your bonsai hobby.
All events are FREE and open to the pubic. A Saturday evening Dinner-Auction will be held on Saturday evening for a modest fee.
Come, join me as we look at naked bonsai at their best when twigs, bark and fruit can be easily appreciated.
