The Northwest Stone Sculptors Association Celebrates our 29th Anniversary with an Outdoor Sculpture Show on Saturday, July 16th, 2016 from 11 am - 4 pm
Our week-long International Stone Carving Symposium culminates with an art show in the meadow of Camp Brotherhood in Mt. Vernon. See artists at work, learn about the stone and tools used to create these 3-dimensional works of art. Rain or Shine!
This event is FREE to the public. Families are welcome!
Stone carving is an age old art form that has captured the imagination and hearts of hundreds of Pacific Northwest Artists. In order to bring voice to the stones, we employ a huge variety of techniques and tools from hand working to the hugest of home power tools! NWSSA members will be showing sculpture and discussing techniques from 11 am to 4 pm. Many of the sculptures are offered for sale. Visit with us to learn about and enjoy the wonderful work of this thriving community of artists.
About the Northwest Stone Sculptors Association
NWSSA is a nonprofit (501c3) membership organization serving as a resource for stone sculpture. It develops educational opportunities and provides a support system for all those who love stone.
The Northwest Stone Sculptors Association was founded in 1984 with the purpose of providing access to stone and stone carving tools and to promote stone sculpting in the Northwest. Our first meetings were held in the studio of Fremont sculptor Meg Pettibone, our Founder. Her dream was to revive the dying art of carving stone. Our first NWSSA Symposium was held in 1986 in the Methow Valley on the eastern slope of the Cascade Mountains. We have since grown to include stone sculptors and associates throughout the western US, Canada, and other parts of the world.
