Approximately 7-10 wood carvers from several states will transform tree stumps into works of art over a three-day period in Legion Park. Watch Colorado outdoor themes take shape from stumps collected by the City of Gunnison throughout the year when trees are cut down for safety reasons. Participating wood carvers will begin their artistry at 10 a.m. on Aug. 16 and 8 a.m. on Aug. 17 and 18. The competition wraps up with judging at 5 p.m. on Saturday. All works become the property of the City of Gunnison to display in Legion Park and other community sites, and each carver also will create a smaller sculpture that will be auctioned off.
