Indianapolis, IN – Eagle Creek Park is hosting the annual Woodcarver, Woodturner & Woodburner Exhibition. The exhibition is on Saturday and Sunday, March 9-10, 2019, from 9 am to 5 pm each day.

This event will showcase Indiana woodworkers and their wide array of artwork depicting beautiful wildlife, flora and fauna and/or traditional Native Americans through the fascinating art of woodcarving, woodturning, and woodburning.

In the past, both artistic and functional wood pieces on display have included Nativity sets, wine stoppers, salt and pepper mills, animal puzzles, fan pulls, lidded boxes, earring and napkin holders, and much more.

Artists will provide insight into their craft through colorful stories and answering questions. They will even provide some demonstrations for their art pieces.

There will be a family activities area with soap carving, decorating tree cookies, a free play area, coloring pages, and a nature’s woodcarver’s station highlighting how native wildlife utilizes wood.

The exhibition will be at the Earth Discovery Center in Eagle Creek Park and is free with park admission. Park admission is $5 per vehicle for county residents, $6 per vehicle for out of county.

Most of the artwork at the exhibit will be for sale, making for some great gifts or wonderful new decorations for your home! The artist entry and 15% of sales will go toward the Eagle Creek Park Foundation. The foundation works to promote, preserve, protect and enhance Eagle Creek Park through the support of the local community and volunteers.
