Dayton Scoggins, a world champion chainsaw sculptor, will be at Ag Days Yazoo on Oct. 20th at the Triangle Cultural Center, 332 North Main, Yazoo City, Ms. Children of all ages love to watch him turn a wood log into a wonderful piece of art using a chainsaw. He founded his business, Artistry in Wood, in 2002 and has performed at fairs and festivals around the country. His sculptures are found in private and public collections in every state and in many countries. Scoggins is a featured artist in many schools’ “Arts Week” programs. He would be a great addition to any event, as his work will mesmerize those in attendance. One of the specialties of Artistry in Wood is the “Stump Job,” in which Scoggins creates sculptures out of stumps on customers’ properties. There are also many public “Stump Job” carvings around the country and in Europe. These sculptures are located at various hotels, golf courses, parks, cemeteries, along highways, mountain resorts, campgrounds and in front of businesses.

  1. As a native of Yazoo County (Bentonia!), I’ll be there helping brother Will cook his famous Kibbee. Yep, I’ll also be selling my Christian murder mystery novels. The Rector and The Actress. Surely, Delta Magazine will cover this historic event. Ahh, nostalgia does a pretty good job of slowing our heart rates. To think about the old days. How the smallest marvels thrilled us back in those days. Wouldn’t this be an excellent time to come together as God’s people, enjoy his early plans for what was and is to come.

    • Thanks so much. I really appreciate your comments. We put a lot of time and energy into this event. We are hoping that 2018 will be bigger and better this year.

  2. Thanks so much.
