August 8 - 9, 2009
Gibbs Museum of Pioneer and Dakota Life in Falcon Heights, Minnesota, sponsored a Woodcarvers Weekend special event. I was invited to attend and demonstrate the art that is woodcarving to museum patrons. It was a great experience
for me, as I am a direct descendant of Heman and Jane Gibbs, who were
my great-great-great-grandparents. I grew up right across the street
and the farm and area have a great deal of personal meaning for me. There were several other carvers present, as well, who specialized in the Scandinavian style of flat plane carving and spoon carving.
