ICE ART

Aaric Kendall is a regular renaissance man. His normal job is running a backhoe, but his passion is carving ice into beautiful sculptures.

That passion earned the 31-year-old Argenta resident two medals at two different Cultural Olympiad events. He won a gold medal in a 12-hour endurance carve competition held in conjunction with the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver, B.C., and a bronze medal at the Cultural Olympiad event held alongside the 2006 Winter Olympics in Turin, Italy.

This weekend, on Nov. 5 at the Olde Brick Wall gift shop in downtown Arcola, Kendall will be back at it, demonstrating his craft, which he picked up during his first year at culinary school.
