Sculpture symposium under way

WEST RUTLAND - The Carving Studio and Sculpture Center announces that the 2010 Marble Sculpture Symposium is underway. Five sculptors have been selected to create works from monumental marble blocks. They will work through August, with the finished pieces scheduled for display in public places in Vermont's historic marble valley.

Participating sculptors in the Symposium are Frank Anjo, Carlos Dorrien, Don Ramey, Rick Rothrock and Nora Valdez. The public is invited to visit the Carving Studio and Sculpture Center to view the sculptures in progress. Maquettes (three-dimensional sketches) for the works will also be on display. The finished sculpture will be unveiled at the opening reception for SculptFest2010 on Sept. 11 from 5-7 p.m.

The 2010 Marble Sculpture Symposium is funded, in part, with a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts and the stone was donated by OMYA, Inc.
