Woodcarving Demonstration by John Hooper
Saturday June 4th 2022 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM
Rangeley's own Master Woodcarver John Hooper will demonstrate the process by which he creates beautiful animal carvings from found and rescued wood. Join us for this demonstration event in the Gallery, inside the Lobby of the RFA Lakeside Theater, on June 4th from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM. Please feel free to wander in and observe how he creates these beautiful carvings.
John Hooper: “I live in the middle of a wildlife protection area on the shore of Rangeley Lake, at the edge of Maine’s 100 Mile Wilderness. This gives me the opportunity to observe wildlife, up close and personal. If I haven’t seen most species of fish, mammals and birds from the comfort of camp, then I’ve seen them in the woods, fields and waters of this beautiful part of the country. I have chosen to capture the images in the medium of wood. Through sculpting and relief carving, I bring to life animals, birds and fish, often in their habitats, doing something that comes naturally.” For a list of John’s awards click HERE.
