This weekend, December 7 - 8, and the next, December 14 – 15, Tlingit artist Odin Lonning is at Vashon Woodworkers on Bank Road, Stop #6 on Vashon Island Holiday Art Studio Tour. He will be demonstrating Coastal carving techniques. Odin’s Northwest Coast Native pieces include carved panels, boxes, and sculptural items as well as painted drums. Other talented artists in this group will have turned bowls, handmade wood spoons, colorful rolling pins, and delightful wood earrings. Studio Tour hours are 10 AM to 4 PM on Saturday and Sunday.
Odin’s art is also on display through December at HUB070, in the Spinnaker Building next door to Chase Bank. Exhibited works are traditional and contemporary pieces that exemplify the sophistication of Northwest Coast Native art. Proceeds from Odin’s holiday art sales benefit the Vashon Hydrophone Project’s whale research and marine mammal stranding response. Call 206-463-9041 or email OdinShark@aol.com for more information.
