New chainsaw artist creates vibrant pieces

Silent auction to benefit fair board

A new chainsaw artist at the Logan County Fair was creating quite a roar as he carved out 15 pieces of art that will be sold to the highest bidders at the end of the day today.

Jason Emmons, who was part of Velocity and Discovery channels’ Saw Dogs television series, made his first appearance at the fair on Tuesday and was able to carve 15 finished pieces by the end of the day Thursday.

And although he is now gone, en route to a show in Kentucky this weekend, his artwork remains and will be used to benefit next year’s annual agricultural exposition.

He was hired by the fair board at a set price and the pieces he creates then become the property of the fair to do with as they wish.
