A Slate State of Mind

A Slate State of Mind

Lecture: 2:00 pm; slate carving demonstration: 3:00–4:00 pm

Vermont slate — quarried, split and trimmed — sheathes the roofs of several of Rokeby’s historic buildings. High up and out of sight, most of us don’t think much about it. Artist Kerry O. Furlani is an exception. An accomplished sculptor and resident of Vermont’s slate valley, Furlani is well-known for her lettering work, sculpture and expressive slate carvings. She gives life to her work using traditional methods introduced to her while training at the Frink School of Figurative Sculpture, in Stoke-on-Trent, England. The artist will present an illustrated lecture followed by a demonstration and opportunities for visitors to try their hands using a mallet and chisel.

8/4/19 2:00pm - 4:00pm
