Toronto Bonsai Exhibition at Canadian Art Gallery

This weekend marked an important event for bonsai in Canada. The Toronto Bonsai Society was asked to present a display of bonsai at the McMichael Canadian Art Collection as part of The McMichael Tree Project Exhibition. The seed for this exhibition was planted several years ago, and the Tree Project provided the perfect venue.

The McMichael Gallery houses a number of important Canadian artworks, including several pieces by members of The Group of Seven. It was therefore an honour for TBS to have been asked to share their bonsai alongside these great works. For their contribution to furthering the art of bonsai through this event, members of the TBS Executive were granted the BCI Award of Excellence.

I spent most of the day there and tried to get some decent pictures. Unfortunately the lighting and backdrops were not ideal for bonsai photography, but hopefully you can get an idea of some of the trees that were exhibited.
