The Carving Exhibit

Art and what is art is very subjective..what I like and think is cuter than a bugs ear..some people may find weird.

This is a wood carving.  Paul is a professional woodcarver..he gets mega bucks for his “stuff.”

This is a project that we are all working on now..Byron carves with us and is teaching us how to end up with a bouquet of Lady Slippers. ( Mine will be a work in progress for many weeks.)

All these fish are carved by Kenny..he is an awesome carver.

These are Reynold’s Bark Carvings we attended a class taught by him last summer.  He was featured recently in a Carving Magazine..he didn’t show up last week ..I hope his head didn’t swell too big after being published.

These are Dave’s..he just retired last January..he is a power carver..he uses power tools to carve.

The Loon on the top of the case belongs to a gentleman that I just met last week…Bob (I think) a retired teacher.

These carvings belong to my cousin Chuckie.  He is a self taught carver that began whittling with a carpet knife over his noon hour.  Yes, he carved those chain links out of a 2X4 piece of wood.  He likes to carve birds and ducks..and Santas.

Last but not least is Far Guy.  His whimsical bark carvings and his thread spool.  I did the house on the left. 

More woodcarvings another day:)

    These are great! Fun topic to display. Does Paul go to the Norsk Fest in Minot? I think we saw him there with tigers and bears etc. Love them! Remembering looking and realizing I couldn’t spend that much :( How long is this display on? We have friends who have a cabin on Ida Lake. They would enjoy seeing the museum. Will let them know. Thanks for the photos….

    Hi Jan from Alex..Yes he was probably there. I cannot afford his art either..and I probably would not have room for any of it..his bear in a ball was tempting. The Art Gallery is open Tues, Thurs and Sat from 10:30 to 4:30. The carving exhibit will be upstairs until July 30 and the quilting exhibit will go up next. Everyone that has seen this exhibit has really enjoyed it:)
