UAS Carpenter takes top honor at Wearable Art Extravaganza
The wood veneer craftsmanship of UAS carpenter David Walker once again earned First Place in the 2012 Wearable Arts Extravaganza.
Attendees at the Juneau Arts and Humanities Council's biggest fundraiser had no problem voting Walker's Beauty in the Beast number one for the People's Choice Award. The piece is inspired by victims of breast cancer. Walker is no stranger to top honors in Wearable Arts. According to a recent article in the Juneau Empire, "Walker has placed in three of the four WOW shows he has entered, bringing home the “supreme winner” award in 2009 for “Lady of the Wood,” a Marie-Antoinette style ball gown. In Juneau his wood gowns have eared him a prize in every show he’s entered." Read more here: http://juneauempire.com/art/2012-02-16/wearable-arts-walker-explores-personal-themes-latest-piece
