“Dear PoPville,

There’s some awesome stuff happening at the National Arboretum this weekend in celebration of World Bonsai Day. Many people might not know this, but the National Bonsai & Penjing Museum at the Arboretum has one of the best collections of bonsai anywhere in the world (outside of Japan).

There will be workshops, good food and vendors selling bonsai. Looks like the weather might start to clear up on Saturday and Sunday looks to be beautiful.

More info here.

I’ll be there as well – exhibiting photos from my new book, STEPHEN VOSS: CREATING PORTRAITS OF BONSAI, that I’ve been working on for the past year and a half. I’ll have copies of the book to sign as well, fresh from the printer.”
