Meet the "Lantern" Makers, pt. 2: Chris Pancoe

Chris Pancoe is an award-winning Manitoba Artist, Artistic Director of Anvil Tree and visionary behind the Straw Sculpture Symposium and Fire on the Red. Chris has worked in wood, snow, and ice and was delighted to get his hands on a new medium, especially one as unique as straw sculpting. He has dreams for what the future of straw sculpting holds in Manitoba. “We’re hoping this is the beginning of Selkirk’s next best festival and a first in Canada that will attract local and international straw sculpture artists here to compete."

Meet the "Lantern" Makers, pt.1: Vytautas Musteikis 

Vytautas hails from Lithuania and came to Selkirk to teach us how to create art from straw and help us launch the first Straw Symposium at Holiday Alley this past November. Vytautas Musteikis first met Chris Pancoe & Peter Hargraves (founders of the Warming Huts competition The Forks) at the Icehotel in Sweden and from there got excited about a new international Straw Sculpture Symposium being created in Selkirk.
