LOLA NELSON - wood working Artist

October 2022


I originally started drawing and painting with oils and watercolors and graduated from Art Instruction Schools in Minneapolis. My paintings and wood sculptures have won many top awards throughout the US and many have been sold worldwide. I’m a signature award holder with Society of Western Artists, Women Artists of the West, and Alliance of California Artists.

My fascination with wood started in 1986. I was raised on a family farm in the Catskill Mountains. Farm animals and wildlife were readily viewed every day. In 1991 I entered my first wood carving show and took second place. This was just the beginning of winning many top awards in local fairs and carving shows throughout California as well as National and International shows. Horses and a variety of North American wildlife, cowboys, mountain men and Indians are my favorite subjects.

My husband and I have traveled throughout the US Parks and Canada and taken many photos of wildlife. Yellowstone and Grand Tetons, British Colombia and Alberta have been our favorite spots to capture wildlife. I later look at our photos and decide whether to create a wood sculpture or a painting.

I’m a member of Central California Wood Carvers, California Carvers Guild and the National Wood Carvers Association, Society of Western Artists, Women Artists of the West and Clovis Art Guild.

I’ve been frequently called to judge shows and do demonstrations. I’ve taught both carving and painting for several years. In 2017, I was invited to participate in the International Wood Culture Society show held in Long Beach as a part of a team representing the United States. There were over 100 countries in attendance showing their wood creations. 

YEAR OF 2022

PICK OF THE YEAR

 WHAT IS THE PICK OF THE MONTH & pICKOF THE YEAR?

Pick of the Month is an informal contest at each general meeting for our members to bring examples of their artwork to be displayed in a peer gallery and voted on during the mid-meeting coffee break that includes light refreshments.  Winners are announced toward the end of the meeting and certificates awarded.  We'd like to see what you've been working on (work done in class is ok).  art should be finished and in a ready-to-hang condition (framed unless its gallery wrap).  we need at least 7 entries to award 3 places, so please participate!  at the end of the year first-place winners will compete for pick of the year.

At the last meeting of the year all the Pick of the Month first place winners are presented and the members vote on their favorite work for the year.
