U.Va.’s Artspace Committee Exhibition Features Recent Works Of The Virginia Stone Carvers Guild

October 23, 2003 -- The Artspace Committee of the University Programs Council is pleased to announce the opening of an exhibition of stone sculptures by the Virginia Stone Carvers Guild. Artists participating in the show are Mike Firkaly, Al Francis, Bob Kretsinger, Chris MacAndrew, Jeff Thruston, Kathy Troyer, Susanna Williams and Suzanne Yeaman.

The exhibition opens in the Newcomb Hall Art Gallery on Monday, Nov. 3, and continues through Jan. 9.

The show, “Recent Works by The Virginia Stone Carvers Guild,” illustrates modern artists’ interpretation of a centuries-old art form.

The newly formed group, Virginia Stone Carvers, is continuing the tradition of stone-carving in both representational and abstract forms. Some members of the group are established professionals, some converts from other media, and all are committed to artistic expression through stone.

There will be an opening reception Thursday, Nov 6, from 5-8 p.m.
