PHOTOS Art League’s 7th Annual Stone Sculpture Exhibit

— The Students/Artists of the 2010/2011 Stone Sculpting Program at the Art League Marco Island’s Center for the Arts, held their 7th Annual Stone Sculpture Exhibit, Friday, April 15.

The McFarland Atrium Gallery was filled with unique, one of a kind sculptures. The exhibit was curated by Program Instructors Joe Cooper and Frank de la Roche.

It’s hard to believe that these pieces of art were once a solid block of stone.

The “Bull Mahi Mahi” seemed to be one of the evening’s favorites, sculpted by Steve Roberts out of Black Chloride. Carol Lindstrom displayed her Domestic Alabaster sculpted “Sweet Cheeks”, an exquisite sculpture of a polar bear.

Other sculptures on display were “Boutonniere” by Annette Alvarez, “Permit” by Steve Roberts, Sandy Norton’s “Ce Sea Lion” and “Night Hunter” by Frank Ebenhardt to just name a few.

A “Work in Progress” table was also part of the exhibit, showing the different stages of stone sculpting, as well as specialized tools used throughout the process.

The Stone Sculpture Exhibit will be on display April 15-22, 2011. The Gallery is located at 1010 Winterberry Drive, Marco Island, and is open Monday – Friday 10 a.m.-4 p.m.

Stone sculpture classes are open to beginner, intermediate and advanced students and run from October – April.

This is a terrible article on the wonderful Stone Sculpture Exhibit at the Art League. There is only 1 photo of Stone Sculpture and in it you can't even see the Stone Sculptures. There are 2 photos of other art works that have absolutely nothing to do with Stone Sculpture. Where was the photographer? He obviously was not in the Stone Sculpture area. This was a magnificent display that the Marco News missed completely. At least John Wissocki should have had the unknown photographer take photos of the title subject. Also the Marco News should have at least seen that the photos did not match the headline.
