The Evergreen Arboretum & Gardens is hosting a unique, community arts experience on Saturday, August 20th brought to us by the Northwest Stone Sculptors Association (NWSSA) who will lead local youth, ages 8-17 in discovering the art of crafting a sculpture through soapstone carving. Instructors will guide participants through the process of shaping this beautiful, natural material into a figurine to take home. Participation is $30 per person; the necessary tools will be provided by NWSSA, Evergreen Arboretum & Gardens and Studiostone Creative.

Welcome to the Montana Special Issue of Sculpture NorthWest!
To honor their many contributions to the art of stone carving, we are taking the opportunity to present three NWSSA members in a single issue: Adrian Hoye, Renda Greene, and the ringleader of the gang, John Thompson.  We are grateful to them for representing the stone carving community in Missoula, MT, and for sharing their work with us here.
