Our coastal rainforests have been home to a rich history of cultural carving for thousands of years, and they continue to inspire new generations of local carvers. The Edge Art Show is in an open call to all community carvers, resulting in an engaging and dynamic display from a wild diversity of carving artists. Discover the relationship between the carver and the coast as you explore the vast variety of carving styles from traditional to contemporary, innovative to whimsical, and from emerging to master carvers. Expect to see the versatility of wood explored as a medium through Paddles, Burl Bowls, Masks, Bentwood Boxes, and Sculptures. Discover the vast expression of the carving arts in Stone Carvings, Woodblock Prints, Multi Media Pieces, and Media Installations. Many of our featured artists will be present at the art show to share stories, knowledge, and connect with our community and visitors. Take the unique opportunity to engage with carvers as they practice their art in the Open Carving Area.
