Traditions and Transitions - Arts of the Earth
This unique display combining the art of pottery, with the art of bonsai, was put on by the Weyerhaeuser Company. The curator for the Pacific Rim Bonsai Collection is Mr. David DeGroot. Some of the collection's most popular trees were used in this exhibit. Not the least of which are Mr. Nick Lenz's American Eastern Larch, Mr. John Naka's Oriental Sweet Gum, and Mr. Vaughn Banting's Bald Cypress.
This exhibit was on display at the PRBC August 17 - September 27, 2006.
