Bonsai in Brevard – April 2024

April 20th – Lingnam Style Program 

The club’s president, Rob Kempinski, will give an overview presentation and demonstration of Chinese Lingnam Style. This artform can be compared to the Impressionistic art movement in Europe.

The Chinese Lingnan penjing style has vigorous, elegant and unrestrained parts placed in a harmonious composition not always related to staid nature.  It uses extensive clip and grow and breaks many of the norms we have learned from Japanese influenced bonsai.  The program will delve into this style and encourage BSOB members to try something different.  

Note that the demo tree will not be raffled, though we will raffle two tiger bark ficus to club members.
