HPG Member Creates New Art for Town
Local artist Karen Rohn is at it again, beautifying the town of Potlatch with her excellent work. This time she has painted the historic Potlatch Lumber Company sawmill on a saw blade, with accompanying art on smaller blades. Bennett Lumber Products go-to guy was once again Paul "Poke" Montgomery, who worked tirelessly to not only round up the blades, but also file the teeth so Karen wouldn't have to cope with any carnage. Karen is adding final touches to the work, which was installed at the little welcome park's kiosk just in time for Potlatch Days. There is no end to the things Karen is doing to keep the unique heritage of "Idaho's Historic Company Town" alive, and we are proud she is an active member of the HPG! Stop by and see Karen's latest creations when you are in town.
