My friends and loyal readers, please accept my invitation to an art show this weekend in Abbotsford. The Central Fraser Valley Woodcarvers club is hosting our annual Art of the Carver show and sale at the Matsqui Community Hall on Saturday, October 22, from 11:00 AM to 4:00 PM. Admission is by donation of $3.
There will be carving demonstrations by our club members all day. I will be demonstrating how to carve with a mallet and full size gouges on two different carvings. I will demonstrate a beginner’s relief carving of an acanthus leaf, and I will also work on an advanced carving which incorporates a more complex version of the acanthus leaf. Other members will demonstrate different styles of carving. It’s a very relaxed and casual atmosphere in a very nice space.
Please come – there will be some excellent carvings on display, and who knows but you may be able to pick up a unique Christmas gift or a piece of fine art for your own home.
