A very interesting bonsai event is coming to brochure:
This is the first bonsai exhibition ever done with new presentation concept to accommodate creative and innovative inspiration, to collaborate bonsai art with other art forms, because we believe art is a living thing and has no limit in conveying messages of the creator. We hope this will open a new perspective to the bonsai word, and bring more fun to bonsai art. Yet, of course you will also witness many “conventional” display but in better way.
What might some of these new perspectives on bonsai display look like?
Conventional bonsai display
Bonsai with frame and figure
Bonsai slightly off-kilter
Yin-yang bonsai with stones
Saturday Evening Post cover with bonsai
Leading the way with wire
The exhibition venue will be in an old historical Dutch fortress, the “Vredeburg Fortress Museum” and the “International Culture Night” will be hosted by our Yogya Sultan in the “Keraton Palace.” All are within walking distance to the city center, Beringharjo traditional market, Malioboro night market etc. After the opening ceremony, all guests will join the “andong” horse-carriage and “becak” city parade to enjoy the unique bonsai display along the city boulevard.
The event will feature plenty of local food, culture and entertainment, including a celebration of Yogyakarta’s birthday.
It will be from 18 – 21 October 2014, in concert with the celebration of 258-th birthday of Yogyakarta City; so we will also celebrate together the “258 Lanterns Night for Yogyakarta.” We are expecting hundreds of guests from around the world, including world famous bonsai masters. Among our friends who will be coming are Mrs. Naemi Iwasaki, Mr. Hatsuji Kato, Solita Rosade, Mauro Stemberger, Pedro Morales, Bill Valavanis, Prof. Amy Liang, Wu Cheng Fa, Huang Jiu Wei etc.

Hi Mac – am not sure yet. I’ll let you know if I can make it.
Sounds like it would be fascinating.
Love the conventional bonsai display at the top; find the others distracting. Can appreciate that each is artistic in its own right, but if we’re talking bonsai, give me a tree on its own.

Oh my, this is just daunting! Some of the displays look like trompe d’oeil (optical delusion).
