Wood carvings by Susan Yohn

Date
1985-02-09
Description
Nineteen color slides. Images of carvings by Susan Yohn, a self-taught wood carver and artist. Her carvings painted figurines and busts made from cypress knees. There are also three images of Yohn in her workshop (1874-1876). In winter 1985, the Bureau joined with two folklorists to conduct a folk arts survey of the St. Johns River basin in northeastern Florida. The St. Johns River is the largest and most used river in Florida, supporting much river commerce as well as a modest amount of commercial fishing. Folklorists Mary Anne McDonald and Kathleen Figgen conducted the survey from January through March 1985 under the direction of Folklife Coordinator Blanton Owen and Bureau Chief Ormond Loomis. Documentation compiled in the survey was used to prepare and present the 'St. Johns River Basin Folklife Area' at the 1985 Florida Folk Festival.
