Upcoming Event: Woodcarving at Eagle Creek

From the Eagle Creek Park Foundation:

More than a dozen woodcarvers from across the state will showcase a variety of artwork depicting wildlife, flora and fauna and/or traditional Native Americans at Eagle Creek Park's 21st annual Woodcarver & Turner Exhibit/Sale at the Earth Discovery Center, 5901 Delong Rd (Indy's northwest side) on Feb. 25-26. Artists will demonstrate how they create their various works and talk with visitors about their craft. A children’s area will also be available where kids can try their hand at carving bars of soap with various kid-friendly tools.

Many of the carvings and sculptures on display will be available for purchase. A percentage of proceeds will benefit the Eagle Creek Park Foundation, Inc, a not-for-profit organization dedicated to the protection and preservation of Eagle Creek Park. In addition to the ongoing monthly artist series, this exhibit is the first of three nature-themed art shows scheduled at Eagle Creek Park for 2012.

If you know anyone interested in participating, you can direct them to call Jay Powell at 327-1196; registration and entry forms are due by Feb. 12.
