Richard,

I think you know how strongly I agree with your sentiments here; I have written many times on the subject myself over the years, and I was as dismayed as you to learn that ABBA had re-scheduled the exhibition. Unfortunately, both here in the USA and in the UK, exhibitions are not run by the bonsai cogniscienti (by those who truly understand the motivations and ideals of the art) but by those who truly understand how to sit in a committee meeting and arrive at a series of compromises between their well-meaning but ill-suited colleagues.

As you point out, Marc Noelanders (an extremely accomplished artist) hosts his exhibition in winter, when deciduous trees and conifers are at their best. Not until the artists themselves undertake the organisation of exhibitions without the involvement of the bonsai politicos, and aim them at a wider art-appreciating audience, can the situation be rectified.

I will, however, take issue with two of your points: First, the Ginkgo exhibition (late September) does allow for deciduous trees to be exhibited naked. The first picture in the album of the last exhibition was of one of my former creations, and English elm. Its current owner, Stefano Frisoni, of Italy, had managed to time the tree's induced autumn precisely, and what a fine job he did, too!

Second, in my experience late winter is better than late autumn for pruning. For one thing, there just seems to be less die-back. For another, in late winter you can more easily detect which buds are most energetic, and where tiny adventitious buds are beginning to form. But hey - whatever works for you!

Colin

Just a small note from me to this subject. It is very difficult to convince the organisers to put up winter exhibitions here as well. It might be a global problem, if we don?t take Japan into account. Hopefully it might change one day.

In my country (Denmark) I believe the main reason for not exhibit bonsais in leafless mode, are the fact that very few people will be able to exhibit trees in good quality. It takes a long time, and precise and scheduled work, to develop deciduous bonsais with a ramification who deserves to be displayed.

And I can just say that the organising problem here is a problem, because here as well the board members are not artists, but organisers.

I believe it is a point, that artist them selves has to take part and organise a winter exhibition, if the situation shall change in nearer future.

For some reasons it is slightly better in Germany.

For many years the main German convention took place in late April or first weeks of May. You should know that this is like February in California or beginning of April on the East Coast.

While this is not the very best time it is still OK. Many deciduous trees have just swollen buds or very fine young foliage.

The trend for very high quailty 'elite' exhibits is away from clubs and organizations to rugged individuals. In Germany that was the spring show in the beginnign of April last year and the fall show in November. This cleary takes into account what is being mentioned in this thread.

But we are still only beginning to understand this issue. 'We' is the more educated bonsai crowd and our beloved bonsai politicians.

Is this really such a big issue? If it's summer and you want to show the tree without leaves - manually defoliate it. It's a common practice in Taiwan and Florida and other tropical climates.

A bonsai that looks good without leaves will also look good with leaves. One has to recognize that this is the natural process of the tree and there is beauty in both stages.

The Japanese have several shows in other than the winter. The Taikanten is specifically held in Fall to show the deciduous trees in their fall color foliage. The azalea show in Kanuma is in the spring to show the plants in flower. In Taiwan there is a bonsai show nearly every weekend throughout the year.

The comment about bonsai convention organizers not understanding good bonsai by scheduling shows in the summer is indeed a broad statement that grossly mischaracterizes many show organizers. Show schedules are driven by many factors, and balancing them is indeed a difficult task. Having been on several show committees I can tell you many of those organizers understand bonsai and have good trees themselves.
