2014 AIBF Chainsaw Carving Invitational

The 2014 AIBF Chainsaw Carving Invitational features 10 Professional Chainsaw Carvers from all over the US and Canada, competing producing some of the most amazing sculptures you will ever see.

Chainsaw Sculpture is a relatively new art form that has gained enthusiasts all over the world. The delicate ballet the carvers perform with a powerful chainsaw is mesmerizing. Come and see what all the buzz and chips flying is all about!

The 2014 AIBF Chainsaw Carving Invitationalis located at the North end of Balloon Fiesta Park.

We will be raffling ECHO chainsaws and sculptures on competition days to benefit the Albuquerque Area Firefighters Random Acts. We will also have a live auction on on each of the competition days with an option to "Buy it Now" for those who may not be able to return for the live auction. Auction/Raffle will begin at approximately 5pm.Each morning features a 90-minute quick carve. You will be absolutely amazed to see what these artists can do with a log, a chainsaw and 90 minutes!

The theme this year is "Spirit of the Winds" which will lend itself to some very creative pieces.

Shipping and handling will be available.

We hope you come by and see this fun and fascinating art form in live action. For more information you can contact organizer and Pro Carver Mark Chavez at 1-505-440-8148, or email sandiabearcompany@msn.com
