The Clark Center for Japanese Art and Culture is pleased to present a bonsai exhibit of "Winter Silhouettes". This exhibit follows the time-honored Japanese tradition to celebrate the beauty of deciduous bonsai in their winter configuration devoid of foliage. Viewing bonsai in winter silhouette is a study in the minimalistic approach to the use of positive and negative space. Some bonsai are designed specifically to be exhibited only during the winter months in order to appreciate the elegance, and grace of delicate branch and twig structures.
The Clark Center invites you to experience for yourself the subtle beauty of "Winter Silhouettes" in the recently re-designed Clark Center Bonsai Garden. On Saturday, February 9 at 2 p.m. Bob Hilvers, Curator of Bonsai, will offer a narrated tour of the "Winter Silhouettes" bonsai exhibit followed by a lecture/demonstration. The fee is included in general admission.
