Bear Hollow Carving Demonstration

Did you ever think of a chainsaw as an artistic tool? In the right hands, this instrument can turn a log into an amazing sculpture. Experience this full-throttle art form with the Bear Hollow Wood Carvers’ Featured Carver and award winning sculptor Jason Emmons.

He will perform multiple carving demos on opening weekend of the fair and leave his pieces behind for auction later in the week.

More about chainsaw artist Jason Emmons

In 2008 Jason was among the first artists to be juried into the Indiana Artisans group. The eighty-five artists selected are described as Hoosiers who are recognized for careful attention to detail, knowledge of a craft and an entrepreneurial spirit. Their extraordinary talents contribute to Indiana’s reputation for quality work. Jason is also one of four members of the Echo Outdoor Power Equipment National Carving Team. Our featured carver has competed in three Echo Cup Championships and in 2009 won the prestigious Echo Cup.
