The Morrison Knudsen Nature Center will host the annual Idaho Woodcarvers Guild show from 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, May 3 and 4.

The Nature Center is located behind the Idaho Fish and Game office at 600 South Walnut St. in Boise.

The Guild and the Nature Center have teamed up to make this show accessible to woodcarvers and the public. The event will be open to the public free of charge.

A variety of work will be represented in the exhibit, including the traditional woodcarving categories of wild fowl, animal, fish, human figure and caricature. Northwestern American Indian art forms are a special feature.

The show will include carving demonstrations, contests and raffles.

Idaho has a strong tradition of woodcarving. The Idaho Woodcarvers Guild promotes the art through teaching and exhibitions. Membership includes youth and others who whittle for their own enjoyment, sculptors who use wood as their medium and professionals who have won blue ribbons at world-level carving competitions.

This exhibit will present the work of carvers at all skill levels from beginner to expert. For information contact Maggie Foreman at 208-469-9855 or gmforeman_5 [at] msn [dot] com; or Douglas Rose at 208-387-0492 or roseboise [at] yahoo [dot] com.
