We continue to grow our Chainsaw Art Show and Auction, with 30 amazing carvers creating nearly 100 chainsaw sculptures that are auctioned every day. Watch the artists at work, then purchase your favorite creations. We have international, pro, and semi-pro artists coming from all over the world to celebrate this amazing art form. Friday and Saturday the program includes the audience favorite “quick carve.” The live auctions are Friday and Saturday at 5:00 pm and Sunday at 2:00 pm. .
Our Auctioneer (and a carver)
Ryan Anderson – Reedsport, OR Sculptures In Motion…nationally and internationally known…he hails from Reedsport, Oregon and practices and competes with his art throughout the west coast, and has competed in Canada, England and Scotland where chair saw art has a huge following. Ryan first picked up a chainsaw and began carving in the summer of 2005 as a way to attend a Marine Biology school after graduating from Reedsport High School.In 2009 he hit his first big goal in his new career, wining first place in the semi-pro division in his home town of Reedsport, Oregon, and moving up to the professional division. “I love what I do”, says Anderson “traveling, meeting people and competing with other artists. I love being challenged by my own imagination and a process that always pushes me to take my work to the next level of sculpting… The thrill and adrenaline rush that I get from competing is unlike any experience. the buzzing of surrounding chainsaws from competitors around me, the inspiration of the sculpture I’m creating and the music in my ears to keep the beat going. Always attempting to not only push my own creative mind but the limits of chainsaw carving itself pushing to take things to the next level of sculpting…I credit my success to many family and friends who have helped me throughout my career and my fellow competitors for their inspiration. Without their support I would not be sculptor, man and father that I am today."
