Welcome to Campbell River Shoreline Arts Society's website. We are the founding organization for Campbell River's annual Transformations on the Shore chainsaw carving competition.
This annual event brings novice, amateur, semi-professional, and professional carvers to the Pacific shoreline of Campbell River for five days during the last week in June to transform cedar and/or fir carving logs into works of art.
About 30 carvers shape their logs using chainsaws, mauls, knives, chisels and various custom tools until a new creation is released from the heart of the wood. The finished sculptures are later displayed in various parks and sponsors' premises for everyone to enjoy year round.
