Elinor Lamb – Featured Carver – Elinor Lamb was selected by the club officers as the 2010 Featured Carver. Elinor began carving in 1979 after visiting a woodcarving museum and learning about what could be done with wood. While she started carving birds, Elinor has ventured into several different styles of carving including realistic figures, caricature, chip, and relief. To give back to her community, Elinor taught community education classes in southeastern Minnesota, sharing her knowledge and skills with other aspiring carvers. As featured carver, Elinor displayed several completed carvings throughout the show.
Raffle carvings – The 2010 Rochester Woodcarvers show was supported by very generous carvers offering their work to the club and those visitors and carvers buying raffle tickets. The raffle generates the revenue we need to offer free admission to the show – so no one will feel they cannot attend. Thanks to everyone who helped make this year’s show a success!
People’s choice carvings – Rochester Woodcarvers Show visitors can vote for their favorite “People’s Choice” carving at the show. The top three vote getters are selected to highlight the next year’s show in advertising and other publicity. For 2010, Steve Murray won first place for his man reading a book, Gary Berg won second place for his two men talking at the Blarney Pub, and Scott Mogren won third place for his trio of woodburned crappies. Thank you to everyone who voted for their favorite carving! You play an important role in helping us pick your favorite carving!
