Maine Coast Stone Symposium 2017

In August 2017, I participated in the Maine Coast Stone symposium at the Boothbay Railway Village.

These are updates from that event.

The Maine Coast stone symposium is under way at the Boothbay Railway Village, and runs through August 31st.  The other artists and I will be on-site through August 21st.

In addition to creating a new work on-site, I’ll be giving a talk that takes one of my projects from conception through installation, with emphasis on the specialized tooling that I make to shape stone.

The talk has been re-scheduled for Tuesday August 15th at 7PM – but come to the symposium at any time.

The Press Herald has an article on the symposium here.

The symposium website has additional details, and a complete schedule of events.  However, note that the panel discussion scheduled for August 23rd has been cancelled.

I look forward to seeing you.

Update 16-20 August:

Article in the Boothbay Register.

Here are some pictures from the Railway Village Facebook page and my Instagram account:

 

Update 22-August:

There’s an article in the Bootbay Register that summarizes the results.  Stay tuned to my work-in-progress page for the completion of this project, whose working title is Flying Jib.
