Announcing the artisans Cup Bonsai Exhibition Portland!

bonsai general - 47 views



I’ve been waiting for a year to make this post! It was over a year ago Ryan Neil and I started throwing ideas around a new exhibition of bonsai in our hometown of Portland, Oregon, and are finally ready to announce it. Cup artisans Portland Bonsai exhibition will showcase bonsai ranging from the traditional to the innovative. The exhibition will be at the Portland Art Museum 4-6 October 2013. Please join us in our “party bonsai ‘in 2013! If you bring bonsai, bring some hefty prizes ($ 10,000 first prize) a memorable display, and of course wine (this is the Willamette valley, after all …)

I’ll keep this short and sweet introduction, but curiosity should leave our website and below- blog (I am now writing two blogs).
