Exhibited stone carvings represent the recent work of “Marble/marble XVIII” sculptors as well as well-known Colorado sculptors Madeline Wiener, Kathi Caricof, Steve Kentz and Greg Tonozzi. New England sculptor Petro Hul and artists from India and Zimbabwe are also featured.Exhibiting fine original stone sculpture in the Crystal River Valley for the 10th year, the Redstone Art Center is committed to benefiting the goals of the Marble Institute of Colorado and expanding community awareness of the art of stone carving. A portion of the proceeds from the sculpture sales will benefit the Marble Institute of Colorado

The Marble Institute of Colorado, a nonprofit organization, is now in its 18th year of sponsoring these stone carving sessions that attract sculptors from around the world. The Marble/marble worksite sits amongst stands of aspen, pine and tall Douglas firs along the Crystal River in Marble.

As many as 40 participants carve amidst marble blocks quarried 50-90 years ago. The stone for the sculpting symposium is Colorado Yule Marble which comes from the quarries located high in the Rockies above the historic town of Marble, where the marble for the Lincoln Memorial, the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, and hundreds of other public buildings was quarried and finished.Call Bev Goss at 963-3790 or visit http://www.redstoneart.com for more information. The Redstone Art Center is located at 173 Redstone Blvd.
