How did you hear about NWSSA?
"In April of 2017, the pop-up stone sculpture gallery "SKULPT" came to Oak Harbor. I was on a road trip with my now fiancée exploring Whidbey Island and by sheer chance, stumbled upon the gallery. At first, I remember being enthralled with the different types of stone and simply trying to identify each rock. It was not until I saw the "Voice of God" (by Lane Tompkins), with twenty different mouths carved into it, that my own mouth dropped. I asked a rather rambunctious Canadian man, John Lafortune, how the piece was made. Four glasses of wine later, I walked out with a soapstone bear carving kit and a promise to attend the Camp Pilgrim Firs Symposium. Two years later I now look back on that serendipitous day and am filled with gratitude, for not only did I discover a new love, but a new family."
