I always approach the assembly of the photo gallery for the International Woodcarver Congress with a mix of trepidation and wonder; trepidation about the amount of work I know I have ahead of me, and wonder at the fantastic carvings I know I’m going to see as I edit the galleries. The 2013 IWC Gallery was no exception, starting with Fred Cogelow’s Best of Show winner. This edition has some 264 photos (twice that number if you count the thumbnails) of some of the best carving you will see anywhere. In the galleries you’ll find 159 of photographer Marc Featherly’s excellent studio photos of the winners at IWC 2013, including more photos of the Best of Show winner.
In addition to the gallery of the prize-winning carvings, you’ll also find Marc’s candid photos from the Classes, Award Banquet, the Judges critique session, the Show floor, and other photos around and about during Congress.
As always, the photos in the winner’s gallery are clickable, and will take you to much larger versions of these great carvings. (Much larger then you’ll see in any paper publication.) The large photos will afford you the opportunity to really look at the winners in detail.
