In the Stephens Gallery
Dr. Robert French, Professor of Sociology, is currently displaying his environmentally sensitive wood carvings, sculptures and watercolors through the month of September.
A brief gallery tour and talk is scheduled for 7:00 p.m., Tuesday, Sept. 15. Convo credit is available.
Dr. French started whittling on a camping trip in the summer of 1969. He bought some myrtle wood remnants on the Oregon coast and whittled a little old man with his pocket knife. The carving showed promise, but more important was the discovery that he could make something with his hands. Since that long-ago summer he has spent thousands of hours whittling, woodcarving, and sculpting. Most of the work on display was completed since coming to University of the Ozarks in the fall of 1987.
