He will do carving demonstrations featuring hand tools and power tools on both Saturday and Sunday.
Brian’s limited edition Rainbow Trout Solar Lights and mushroom lights will be available at a special show price while supplies last. These color changing solar lights are cast by hand in Brian’s home and created from his original wood carvings. The rubber molds and process will also be on display.
Brian has been growing and sharing fancy tomato and pepper plants for the last twelve years. He collects his own seeds allowing plants to acclimate to our region. He nurses these babies to health over three months to joyfully give them away. Gardening helps people in many ways, from appreciating natural processes, to recognizing subtle detail, and gaining a sense of reward in effort. Brian has roughly 30 varieties of tomato and 20 varieties of pepper currently growing for this show. He will bring in a third of the plants everyday of the show.
This is a family friendly art show with several educational displays and learning opportunities. Brian Odermatt as the middle school woodwork teacher hopes to inspire the youth and expand their understanding of what ART and woodwork means to him.
