Carving goes to Vancouver
An owl sculpture by Creemore woodcarver David Bruce Johnson has been selected for an international exhibit benefitting wildlife.
He is one of 200 artists worldwide showing at the Artists for Conservation Festival in Vancouver from Sept. 27-29. It is a multi-day art and environmental education event, featuring AFC’s annual show – the world’s top conservation-themed art exhibit and artist expo.
The owl was carved during the 2017 Creemore Festival of the Arts at the invitation of owl show organizer Jim Harkness.
“I call it My Heart Imogi, My Owl,” said Johnson. “I asked the little kids that came around to count the number of hearts that are in the grain of the wood and there are lots. The kids had fun.”
This is Johnson’s fourth time being included in the exhibit. Visit Afc.ca.
