Stone carvers exhibit is open

Staff Report

The 7th annual stone carvers exhibition opens at the Redstone Art Center, 173 Redstone Blvd., Redstone, Saturday, July 19, with a reception from 6-8 p.m. in the center’s sculpture garden.

The exhibit runs through September.



This unique show offers a special opportunity to view the show at the gallery and visit the worksite in Marble to watch the sculptors, as well as tour the working Yule Marble Quarry.

The exhibit features more than 50 works representing styles from abstract to supple figurative forms.



The worksite is near the turn-of-the-century marble mill along the Crystal River in Marble and sculptors work among the aspens chiseling, grinding and polishing Colorado Yule Marble mined from the mountain quarry high above town.

The Marble Institute of Colorado (MIC) is a non-profit organization established for the education, training, growth and development of stone carvers. The co-directors of MARBLE/marble are two prominent Colorado sculptors, Madeline Wiener and Kathleen Caricof, both of Denver.
