An annual carving event in Bowser will see torches firing and chain saws blazing this Thursday and throughout the weekend.

The Art of Carving a Community is celebrating it’s third year in Lighthouse Country and will see four carvers creating masterpieces on the grassy area beside the Salish Sea Market August 7 through 10.

Bowser artist Ken Kirkby dreamed up the event with visions of filling the area with outdoor art, bringing people and attention to Lighthouse Country and helping carve out a sense of place.

Magnolia Court is hosting the event and support is coming from several businesses in the Lighthouse Community including the wood donation from Island Timberlands.

Part of the event this year will include a fundraiser for a local carver who was in a motor cycle accident recently and is out of work.

Look for a feature article on the event coming up in The News’ Thursday’s edition.
