The Floyd Scholz Carving Collection

In 2004, The Laumeister Art Center was given yet another outstanding collection of art – the bird carvings of Master Carver Floyd Scholz. Drs Myron and Karin Yanoff were introduced to Bennington and the Laumeisters by Scholz. The couple was interested in finding a home for their thirteen carvings and being impressed by what the Laumeisters were doing for the town and the art community they generously donated the works. The art center now has a gallery dedicated to Scholz's birds and his carvings capture the birds’ likenesses so successfully that patrons never cease to be in awe of his work.

Scholz had previously taught workshops near his home in central Vermont, but The Laumeister Art Center is very proud to now host his workshops throughout the summer and fall to students that come from around the country to learn from this extremely talented artist.
