This exhibit displayed the extraordinary wood carvings of Fraser Smith. Mr. Smith specializes in sculptures that may weigh more than 60 pounds and take hundreds of hours to complete the process of sanding, carving and painting. Once finished he has created pieces of art that appear to be made from cloth and can fool the average eye.
He began wood carving as a hobby in the 80’s and sold his first piece for $10,000 which took over a year to make. Throughout the years he has made over 30 quilts, jackets, and hats and is represented in galleries and on display in museums throughout the country.
