Quesnel Library reveals new carving

From L-R: CRD Area 'B' Director Jerry Bruce, carver Mat Johnston
and CRD Area 'A' Director Ted Armstrong 
Yesterday - CRD Electoral Area A Director Ted Armstrong/Electoral Area B Director Jerry Bruce, along with local carver Mat Johnston, revealed a new carving in the Quesnel CRD Library

Johnston donated his carving to the Quesnel Branch and it is now a feature piece in the library. The carving depicts an owl from the popular Harry Potter series and includes space to display books.

“After I carved this owl I thought it would be perfect sitting in the Quesnel Library. As both a teacher and a carver, I am happy to donate my work to encourage the love of reading in our community,” explains Johnston.

CRD Electoral Area A Director, Ted Armstrong, expresses his appreciation, “The artistry in this piece is incredible. On behalf of the Cariboo Regional District, I would like to thank Mat for donating such a wonderful carving to be featured in our library.”
