The Northwest Stone Sculptors Association Celebrates our 23rd Anniversary with an Outdoor Stone Sculpture Show on Saturday, August 26th, 2017 from 11 am - 4 pm
Join over 50 members of the Northwest Stone Sculptors Association for an afternoon exhibition of our work on the last day of our week-long Annual International Stone Carving Symposium with an art show at Camp Suttle Lake in Sisters, Oregon. 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 variety of techniques and tools from hand working to large power tools. Chat with Artists from Japan and the Pacific Northwest region to discuss the tools, techniques, and stones used to create their art. 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.
This event is FREE to the public. Families are welcome!
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.
