The Coastal Carvers’ 27th annual wood carving show, Artistry in Wood, will be held on Saturday and Sunday, Jan. 19 and 20, at the Chinook Winds Convention Center, located at 1777 NW 44th St. in Lincoln City.
People are invited to experience the world of woodcarving at one of the largest shows on the West Coast. There will be a variety of woodcarvings and wood art, including realistic wildlife, caricatures, intarsia, folk art items and wood turning. All items are hand or power-carved and finished. Those attending will have the chance to meet the artists. There will also be a number of vendors selling wood, books and tools.
This year’s featured artist will be Randy Martin, from Sandy, who will talk about his art. Artistry in Wood will also offer classes and talks to introduce the craft of woodcarving to youths and adults.
