Columbus Bonsai Society Show is moving to serve you better


ANNUAL BONSAI CLUB SHOW TO EXPLORE NEW VENUE Thirty-Seventh edition of yearly exhibition will highlight Asian art in a European setting.
 
 
      The Columbus Bonsai Society will bring a Teutonic twist to their annual show this year, as they display examples of bonsai, the Japanese art of miniature trees, in the Old World setting of German Village’s historic Maennerchor club. The Bonsai Society is an educational and social organization for those interested in the classic Japanese form of horticulture, and presents a show each year as a way of educating the public about the art form.
      The club’s vice president, Ken Schultz, who is organizing the show commented: “In past years we have had the show at Franklin Park Conservatory, but because of events and exhibits happening at the Conservatory recently, there really is not enough space to put on the kind of show we are committed to providing. Also, we really want to be accessible, which in our minds means no admission charge, and that is just not possible at the Conservatory any longer.”
      During the two day event club members will display over one hundred examples of the miniature trees they have patiently trained and nurtured. Workshops and demonstrations will take place during the show, so participants can get a hands on feel for what is involved in creating a bonsai. Several vendors will be on site offering a wide range of plant stock, pottery and tools needed for bonsai work.
      Admission to the show is free and open to the public, a free will donation will be accepted. Demonstrations are free as well, though workshops will have a modest fee to cover cost of materials used. Food and beverages will be available in the Maennerchor’s well known Rathskeller restaurant during most show hours. Free onsite parking is available, and the show venue is served by public transportation.
 
A complete schedule of demonstrations, workshops and other activities will be posted here on the website.
