Here is the club programme for the forthcoming year
A quick reminder for all our members.
The last meeting of this year is on Monday 2nd December 2013, a fish & chip supper along with a quiz organised by Andy of Stone Monkey fame.
It would be great to see as many members as possible.
The first exhibition attended by the newly formed bonsai society was Heathrow.
Two of our club members (well at least one is) showed their trees assisted by our new chairman Jose.
An excellent show it was too.
Calm down everyone, he is not wanted really (maybe by his wife!)
He did attend BURRS at the weekend see link http://yamadoriforsale.com/2013/11/11/some-of-the-guys-at-burrs-2013/
The idea of the exhibition is to introduce people to the beauty of bonsai, and not necessarily the highest end trees in the world. There are a range of trees, varieties, ages and styles. To some in the bonsai community, trees may look unworked or young. This is deliberate. Some people may see dirty or fallen leaves, again, this is deliberate. Everything about the show has been carefully thought out and done with a purpose in mind, from the positioning of the objects to the colour co-ordination and the views around the gallery. Some of the combinations work very well. Some are not as successful and may not be to everyone’s taste. The sculptures add an accent of the abstract and the possibilities of bonsai as a medium.
These are not professionally taken photographs and some angles cannot truly represent what is a three-dimensional art, so with your understanding, please enjoy…the first Natural Flux exhibition. Please visit the website for some excellent photos
