The works of stone sculptor Heide Messing-McDonald and participants in her workshops will be on display at the North Country Cultural Center for the Arts beginning Saturday, Oct. 15.
The North Country Cultural Center for the Arts will host “Ten Years of Stone Sculpting,” a collaborative arts exhibition, Saturday, Oct. 15, through Saturday, Oct. 29.
The exhibition will celebrate the past 10 years of creativity from acclaimed stone sculptor Heide Messing-McDonald and participants in her stone sculpting workshops at the arts center.
Born in Kassel, Germany, Messing-McDonald has lived in Quebec since 1953 and has been actively involved in the fine arts community since 1977. Though the first phase of her career was devoted to painting, engraving, and silkscreen techniques, it wasn’t until the early 1990s she became involved in stone sculpting.
Messing-McDonald has been teaching workshops and sharing her talent and expertise with participants here at the arts center for the past decade.
She will teach her final stone sculpting workshop Tuesday, Oct. 11, through Thursday, Oct. 13 and will exhibit some of her works alongside those of past workshop participants during the show.
The opening reception for “Ten Years of Stone Sculpting” will be held at the arts center, 23 Brinkerhoff St., from 5 to 7 p.m. Oct. 15.
The gallery is open Tuesday through Saturday, 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
