Capitol Woodcarvers Show at Keizer Art Association

This is a great show enjoyed by visitors and carvers alike. This is the only opportunity for Gallery visitors to see beautiful works-of-art produced in wood. Last year's show received wonderful reviews and favorable comments. The carvings on display represented Capitol Woodcarvers and its members very well

This year's show will take place during the month of October. Carvings can be delivered to Bob Curtis any time during September up to September 29. Or entries can be delivered to KAA, 980 Chemawa RD NE, Keizer Oregon 97303 on September 29 betwee 1:00PM and 5:00PM.

There will be a reception October 2 to allow carvers and visitors to interact. This is a good event to attract new Club members. Be sure to participate and visit the show.

Christmas Ornaments

Christmas is almost here. The OSU 4H Extension Program will be having their annual Holiday Fair at the Fairgrounds in Rickreall soon. Dates will be announced as they become available.

Capitol Woodcarvers members have always been very generous and carved many ornaments for the sale. This is the Club’s only fundraiser and everyone’s support is very much appreciated. Bob Curtis will be accepting ornament donations between now and October’s Club meeting. We also use this opportunity to donate ornaments to the Center 50+ as a fund raiser for the Center. Center 50+ is very supportive of our Club and our events/activities, so it is our pleasure to donate ornaments to them.

Carving Classes:

Several of our club members offer local carving classes. Chip, caricature, relief, and other carving-style classes are available.

Classes are presented either in mentored or group sessions. Participants range in skill levels from beginner to intermediate and advanced.
