3-in-1 Exhibition in Guangzhou, Oct 2010

Sep 15th, 2010 | By | Category: Bonsai Events, Featured Articles

There will be a very interesting art exhibition of bonsai, suiseki, painting, and antique furniture during the golden week national holiday next month in Guangzhou, China. This is so tempting and it keeps luring me to go regardless of my overly packed schedule and the extremely unpleasant traffic and inevitable crowd during the country’s busiest travel season in the year. While I am still debating whether or not I should go, I know I should share what I have learned about this art exhibition with other bonsai, suiseki, and art lovers. One should definitely check out this art exhibition if possible.
