Texoma Woodcarvers Guild

Wood carving by Wanda Reichert

Has woodcarver Wanda Reichert reproduced the home of the Lost Boys? Certainly her rustic house carved from a tree bark would make a good home for them! The work of Reichert and other area wood carvers will be featured in Texoma Woodcarvers Guild Show and Sale at Sherman Arts Festival. The exhibit will be held on the stage of the Municipal Ballroom, and will be open to the public from 9 – 5 Friday, Sept. 15, and Saturday, Sept. 16.

A special feature of the show will be a Nativity scene carved of butternut wood. Each member of the Texoma Woodcarvers Guild has carved one piece for the scene. A drawing will be held Saturday afternoon, Sept. 16 and some lucky person will win this Christmas treasure. Tickets for the drawing may be purchased from TWG members (call Dick Malnory, 903-532-5429, and will also be sold during the festival. The proceeds will be donated to Home Hospice of Grayson County.

Be sure to visit the exhibit and be on the lookout for any pirates, Indians, or crocodiles!

Again this year TWG will offer a make-and-take carving project, free, for kids age 8 – 12 at Sherman Arts Festival. The activity will be offered in front of the Sherman Youth Center, the time to be announced. Come and "Celebrate ART" with the woodcarvers!

Theatricks and the Sherman Arts Festival bring to Sherman a "Celebration in Art!"
