Just in time for Father's Day, ArtWalk will be featuring the wood carvings of Donovan Qualls.

The Qualls family has owned and operated its studio, Short Mountain, since 1990. Located in the heart of the Ozark Mountains of Arkansas, the area offers a great resource for a variety of different species of woods to make the studio's products.

ArtWalk is currently carrying the Qualls' hand-carved walking and hiking sticks, and their decorative strings of carved wooden fish, all of which are made from wood sourced near their studio. They take great pride in craftsmanship and the fact that all of their products are handmade in the USA.

According to ArtWalk, "If you are looking for the perfect gift for the dad in your life, or an addition to your own cabin or family room, the Qualls' strung fish is an affordable and fun option, not to mention a conversation starter. And for those that like to hit the trail, their walking sticks are lightweight, come in a variety of woods, and all have leather lanyards for more secure handling and storage."

The Qualls' fish and hiking sticks are located on ArtWalk's main level. With three and a half floors and more than 300 local, regional and national artists, ArtWalk is located at 611 W. King St. (across from Mast General Store) in downtown Boone. Hours are Monday through Saturday, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Sunday, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
