Maine Edge previews Lord Hall Gallery sculpture exhibit

The Maine Edge published a University of Maine news release about a Lord Hall Gallery exhibition of stone sculptures created by eight Maine artists. “Carved Stone: Maine Artists” features artists who were selected in response to the aesthetic and creative quality of their work, as well as a means of demonstrating the traditions, processes and emerging forms that make up the practice of stone carving. The exhibit, which runs Oct. 6 through Nov. 17, seeks to bring attention to the strength of Maine’s stone carving history and the contemporary artists who work within and endeavor to expand upon those traditions. Artists included in the exhibition are Matthew Foster, Mark Herrington, Kazumi Hoshino, Hugh Lassen, Richard Reichenbach, Jesse Salisbury, Tim Shay and Glenn Swanson.
