He is utterly passionate about marble.When I was talking to Greg the other day, he was telling me how lucky we are to have the marble quarry so near to us. The quality of the marble that we have access to is some of the best in the country.”I went crazy the first time I saw white rock,” he said. “The beauty of this marble is that it is great for carving form and fine lines. Beginners can achieve success very early in their instruction.”Greg says we are lucky to have this marble, but I say we are lucky to have Greg, one of the country’s foremost stone artists. He teaches from 6-9 p.m. every Thursday.Call the Glenwood Springs Center for the Arts for applications, tickets or information at 945-2414.Calendar of EventsNow through April 3: Wild Women 5.0 art exhibit7 p.m. Friday, March 4: Colcannon concert April 2: Spring into the Arts concert for the silversmithing program with a capella group Collage and pianist John Riger and friendsApril 8-May 1: Home and garden arts exhibit and sale1 p.m. Saturday, April 16: reception and garden party7 p.m. April 29-30: Dancers Dancing, including a Saturday matinee at 1 p.m., Glenwood Springs High School auditoriumGayle Mortell is the director of the Glenwood Springs Center for the Arts.
