    The Arts Center of Cannon County announces the opening of "An Old Man Has Visions" featuring the amazing wood carvings of James Bunch. This exhibit will be featured in the Marly Berger Gallery March 12th through May 9th.

    Working from memory, with only a pocketknife and the occasional handsaw, James Bunch has produced a body of work estimated at 300 pieces which range in subject matter from the familiar tools and mechanics which have been central to his life to elaborate pieces notable for their detail and kinetic features. According to Dr. Robert Cogswell, Director of Folklife for the Tennessee Arts Commission, "His human figures are perhaps most striking, consistently stylized as stiff but expressive individuals sharing hallmarks of character and community." Careful inspection of his work reveals not only fine carving, but a commitment to carefully executing every part of his creations. Using the skills of a traditional wood carver, Bunch invents shockingly realistic creations that have to be seen to be believed.
