Good things come in small packages
From Friday, 27 October 2017 to Sunday, 29 October 2017, the Bonsai Society of WA and the YMCA Morley Sport & Recreation Centre Art Department will be showcasing works of art, ikebana and bonsai at the Morley Sports & Recreation Centre. Entry to this community event is by gold coin donation.

Ikebana is the Japanese art of flower arrangement which dates as far back as the seventh century. Bonsai is another Japanese traditional art form which uses trees grown in containers or trays. With careful pruning, potting and wiring, the bonsai practitioner carefully and painstakingly creates aesthetically pleasing miniatures of mature trees. Both art forms are said to be relaxing and great stress-relievers, making these ideal activities to be included in the Act-Belong-Commit campaign. The Act-Belong-Commit health promotion campaign aims to encourage people to act to promote and safeguard their mental wellbeing and to support organisations providing mentally healthy activities to promote participation in those activities.

The opening night for this community event commences at 6.30pm on Friday 26 October 2017. The displayed artworks and selected bonsai will be available for sale over the weekend. Live demonstrations will be held and artists will be in attendance on Saturday and Sunday.

This exhibit is for the community, by the community and not to be missed.
