47th Annual Oklahoma City Show
On October 19 & 20, 2013 the Oklahoma City Woodcarvers Club hosted its 47th annual ‘Artistry In Wood ‘ show and competition at the Oklahoma State Fair Park. Many of the attendees were artists themselves and were inclined to stop, talk and exchange ideas with participants displaying their art. Debbe Edwards served as competition judge, and conducted an excellent 3 day wood carving seminar after the show. She judged 224 entries in 41 woodcarving categories including entries from Beginner Youth and Adult, to Intermediate and Open category carvers. We also had entries in wood turning and scroll saw categories.
Best of Show went to Neil Nulton for his beautiful carving of a ‘Green Winged Teal Hen’, with 1st runner-up to B. David Duncan for his carving of a ‘Wild Turkey’ and 2nd runner-up to Bruce Futterer for Carving of ‘Mother Teresa’. Blue ribbons also went to Jerry Keil, Fred Self, Steve Brandt, Tim Hataway, Gerald Krogman, Dan Nealey, Chuck Wright, David Rogers, Bob Smith, Tim Hataway, Elaine Nealey, Jerry Wooliver, D.J. Boyce, Mary Boyce, Pete Zachry, Robert Brunson, Kent Wallace, Shawn Krogman, David Koelsch, Lynn Stacy, Myrna Keck, John Luna, Scott Haycox, Don Mantooth, Richard White, Pat Priest, and Nick Lampman.
We are looking forward to our next ‘Artistry In Wood’ show, October 18 and 19, 2014, also scheduled for the Hobbies and Arts Building, at Oklahoma State Fair Park in Oklahoma City.
