For several months, Tlingit artist Odin Lonning has been working on multiple projects, including a large totem commission. Starting this weekend, Saturday and Sunday May 2 – 3 from 10 AM to 5 PM, the public is invited to Vashon Forest Stewards to view two totem poles nearing completion, as well as the artist’s educational display and a variety of pieces for sale -- just in time for Mother’s Day.

Follow the purple signs from Vashon Highway and 188th Street to find Odin’s carving shed at Forest Stewards. For more information call 206-463-9041, visit, or email
