Some of my carvings are on display and for sale at the new Art Gallery “Arts on the Market” in Downtown Toledo. This is a new Gallery with a lot of crazy great artists. I appreciate the owners, care, vision, and work. Scott is great to work with. Here is their FB page . https://www.facebook.com/Artonmarket/
I entered the local art show here at the library submitting two carvings. I did not know what to expect or how it even worked. It was a great experience for sure.
The highlight of the day was having my daughter surprise me and she drove from Flint to come to the art show. She really blessed me more than the show for sure. Have my daughter and wife with me was the greatest.
The Green Man in Cottonewood bark won an Honorable mention and the “Purchase Award”. The Bedford Arts Council, gives 2 of those out. They buy the piece and display it at the library forever I guess. I took the check and ordered more cottonwood bark from BC, Canada. It was fun and I was honored. The fisherman was also entered and will be displayed with all the other art the next 3 weeks.
This was a fun guy to do. My July 2016 project I guess. Shop has been so hot, I have not carved out there much. I left the eyes without pupils. Alec Lacasse does that and I think its a nice touch artistically. You should check out his stuff for sure. Here is his link. I took a lesson off him last year and will be scheduling another one. He is pretty amazing. Click Alec Lacasse Artist and Sculptor.
