Setting Up The Display

Not the best photo but it should give you some idea of what the inside of the museum gallery will look like when it opens on November 23rd.  I was really concerned about being able to fill up all the space in that room but it turned out we had just enough to do it.   To move it all from our gallery to theirs we had originally rented a Uhaul truck.  Fortunately, that fell through and we were stuck with a 5X10' trailer.  I say fortunately as we would have never gotten everything inside that truck.  With all the stands for the large glass cases we were just barely able to get it into the back of our truck and the trailer.  But, evidently someone was watching over us and everything fit and we made it in one trip.

So, all we do now is wait in anticipation for that 10:00am opening next Friday.  Judy and I will be on hand the first two days and then every Saturday until January 6 when the show closes.  If I'm not too nervous I might even try some demonstration whittling.    I'll try my best to post a video of the display before the doors open.  Even better I hope those of you who can make the trip up or down to Woolaroc Museum will stop in and take a look.


  1. I am going to have to try my best to schedule a trip to Bartlesville to see the show. Hopefully my wife's cousin in Tulsa will not be visiting his girlfriend in France over the holidays so we can bum a room off of him and afford to take the trip. Looks like a wonderful show, hope to see you there. You deserve the honor and I know you have done all caricature carvers proud.

  2. I am excited for you Lynn! It would have been an honor to even have been considered for this kind of show! But now to see pictures of the gallery all set up and nearly ready for visitors is even more awe-inspiring.



  3. The best to you on this exhibition of the finest of your work. Your carvngs look so very museum-like (professionaly dispalyed) and I know you'll reap alot of reward from this showing. Please post more pictures if you can as things progress.
