Northwest Stone Sculptors Association

Hello stoners,

What a crazy time. It is scary, maybe even terrifying, depending upon the latest news source I have seen. Corona virus and COVID-19 are a serious threat to us here in the northwest and around the country. We do not have any events in the immediate future, but we do have the Women's Hand Carving event coming up in June, Pilgrim Firs in July and Suttle Lake in August. In my hopeful moments I dream of the virus being contained in May and we can continue weaving the magic that is a NWSSA symposium throughout the summer.

The Board of Directors and the symposium managers are keeping a close watch on the recommendations and directions given by the CDC, state governors and other public health officials for public gatherings. We have been in contact with the symposium venues and they are granting us great flexibility. It is still early days and we will continue to monitor developments and discuss the best course of action. Our number one priority is the health of our members. However, I tear up to think of a summer without symposiums.

At this point we have not opened up registration for Pilgrim Firs or Suttle Lake, and we will wait longer than normal to begin registration for these events. We have been taking registrations for the Women's Hand Carving event. We are trying to structure these events such that if we need to cancel our members can get a full refund of the symposium fee.

Researchers are working on the question of whether a head to toe covering of stone dust (excluding a face mask and goggle shadow) conveys any protection from viruses. Stay tuned for more information.

Welcome to the Montana Special Issue of Sculpture NorthWest!
To honor their many contributions to the art of stone carving, we are taking the opportunity to present three NWSSA members in a single issue: Adrian Hoye, Renda Greene, and the ringleader of the gang, John Thompson.  We are grateful to them for representing the stone carving community in Missoula, MT, and for sharing their work with us here.
