Members from western New York as well as Pennsylvania will be displaying some of their finest bonsai. Each member is encouraged to display their bonsai in all stages of development. Approximately 100 bonsai will be exhibited.
For the first time this year the Upstate New York Suiseki Study Group will be having a special display to introduce the public to viewing stones. Antique stones as well as those collected during the past 50 years will be shown.
As in the past Ikebana International will have a display of their lovely flower arrangements. Many different schools will be displayed so the subtle differences can be enjoyed.
On Saturday at 2pm award winning bonsai artist Mark Arpag will be presenting a bonsai lecture/demonstration.
