Re – Rooted

An up-date about the week-long event:

In true West Coast style, artists Shane Tweten and Jesse Toso demonstrate the beauty and tradition of wood carving in their upcoming show “Rooted”. Bowen Island resident and local arborist, Shane Tweten blends traditional First Nations carving techniques with legends and mythology of his Nordic heritage. Jesse Toso works in Vancouver creating one-of-a-kind solid wood furniture and is an award-winning chainsaw carver.

Together they share a passion for wood and honouring the tree. For one week only, they will exhibit their works on Bowen Island at the Sugar Cube Gallery (461 Bowen Trunk Road, Snug Cove, BC). There will be live chainsaw carving demonstrations daily at 3pm.

From now to Summer 2016 the place is incubating words, wild women, boys and men.
