JEFF HANSEN, from Baudette, is working on a piece at the Wood Carvers Camp held at Big Stone Western Arts in Odessa on Sept. 4-8. Wood carvers gather in Odessa Despite hot, windy weather, 34 artists gathered to share stories, and techniques at the Big Stone Western Art Gallery in Odessa last week. Assembling last Wednesday from as far away as Kansas and Missouri, artists stayed through the weekend working on their wood carving, stone carving and basket weaving projects. A number of curious people were on hand each day to watch the artists practice their craft. Odessa carver Darold Bailey's pre- sent project is to make a set of 25 numbered bronze buffaloes. Bailey was aided in a bronze pour by Lance Okeson of Ortonville and John Schultz of Odessa. It was the second buffalo he made. The first one was purchased by Darold's son Jesse. All the artists enjoyed getting together and are looking forward to next year's event. The art gallery is owned by Darold and Paula Bailey. Auxiliary notes By Joyee Seherer, Lith family.
