On Saturday, June 21, three members of the Berea Welcome Center Carvers will demonstrate a variety of woodcarving styles and techniques from 10:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at the Kentucky Artisan Center at Berea.

Demonstrating that day will be Keith Flowers, of Richmond, Jack Gann of Berea and John Ferguson, of Danville. While Flowers carves caricatures, Gann specializes in animal carvings and Ferguson does a variety of carvings, ornaments and toys.

Members of the Berea Welcome Center Carvers live in many communities in central Kentucky, and their activities include carving classes, carving demonstrations at schools, monthly Kentucky Artisan Center demonstrations and special events.

Members specialize in a wide variety of techniques and styles of carving. Carvers in the group often mentor each other, and all enjoy sharing their love of woodcarving, making their demonstrations at the Kentucky Artisan Center a mix of humor, technique and storytelling.

Woodcarving is an ancient art found in every culture and part of the world, reflecting many carving styles such as whittling, line carving, chip carving, pierced carving, relief carving, in-the-round carving (sculpture), architectural carving and chainsaw carving.

The Kentucky Artisan Center at Berea currently features works by more than 700 artisans from more than 100 counties across the Commonwealth. Special exhibits on display include “Repurposed & Recycled: Works by Kentucky Artisans,” through Sept. 6; and on display in the lobby, “Kentucky Bourbon: Distillation and Inspiration” through Nov. 16. For more information about events call 859-985-5448.
