Rocking and rolling!
Renting space in the old Hutchins and Perrault shed located in East Barre, VT I have been busy crafting memorials and making my own sculptures. The work has been steady; cutting stone and creating art for a network of local small family run manufacturers and large corporations alike.
2018 has been an exciting year for making sculpture and staying busy! Representing the VT. Folklife Center and their amazing apprenticeship program I participated in the Champlain Maker Faire Sept. 22. It was a really fun day at Shelburne Farms talking to people about stone carving, Vermont’s traditional arts and how to apply for the apprenticeship grant that led me on a direct path to my career as a memorial sculptor.
I am very excited to share that I will be teaching stone carving classes at AVA Gallery and Art Center the weekend of January 25. Located in Lebanon, NH this organization offers challenging and fun art making opportunities in state of the art facilities. Their new stone carving studio is equipped with plenty of space, natural light, and air ventilation equipment. To learn more or sign up for classes visit www.avagallery.org
This fall I again joined forces with the empowering organization Vermont Works For Women. I participated in their Action Expo at the Women Can Do! Conference at Vermont Technical College. This annual event promotes STEM and Trades careers and gives over 400 high school age girls the opportunity to experience hands on trade work in a variety of professions.
I am extremely excited to share that the four person show I participated in at The Castleton Downtown Gallery Rutland, VT "Revival: Stone and Steel" is reviewed in the March 2018 issue of Sculpture Magazine. Please take a look at the link on my Press Page!
