The show will be open to the public from 10am to 5pm each day. There will be more than 50 bonsai on display as well as some viewing stones.
The bonsai have been styled by the society’s members, some over many decades. The best of Southern California bonsai will be on display.
On Saturday March 23rd John Naka’s ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Naka ) forest planting “Goshin 3” will be reassembled with former National Bonsai Collection curator and friend of John Naka, Jack Sustic leading the re-planting. Goshin 3 (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Goshin) was John’s recreation of his Goshin Forest Planting - by
far the most famous bonsai in the country. The original is the premier bonsai in The North American Collection at the National Arboretum in Washington DC.
Sunday between 11am and 1 pm a bonsai creation demonstration will be put on by past president Lindsay Shiba.
Members will be available to answer questions during the open hours. Literature on bonsai will be available at the show and in the Huntington’s book store.
California Bonsai Society is a non-profit organization, which consists of professional instructors and advanced students, which formed in 1950 and was incorporated in 1962 under the presidency of John Y. Naka to ensure the continuation of this special art. CBS is one of the most important and influential bonsai clubs in the country.
