Wood Carving Art Show

Hear Ye! Hear Ye!

The Central Fraser Valley Woodcarvers Clubis hosting a public art show. “The Art of the Carver” is a show and sale of carving art from all over the northwest. It’s being held in Chilliwack, BC, at Heritage Park on Saturday, May 7th, from 11 am to 7 pm. Admission is $2 donation for adults. Kids under 12 are free.

Now’s your chance to see some world class wood carvers displaying their art in a show while also competing for awards like “Best of Show” and “First Place in Division”, etc. Three judges,  including Canada’s premiere carver, Dennis Moor, will be at the show to make their determinations for what makes a great carving. Dennis Moor is the owner of Chipping Away, a wood carving store, and also is the designer of what are undoubtably the world’s best chip carving knives on the market. Not only will he be judging the entries, but he will also be doing a few carving demonstrations throughout the day.

Also, if you’d like to find out prices of carvings, many of the carvers will have their carvings on sale. If you’re a carver, you can compare prices to see if you’ve priced your carvings “in the market”. There will be hundreds of people at the show admiring and buying. If you’re looking at picking up a tool or two, there will be many vendors displaying tools and materials and giving demonstrations.
