On February 11th, the winner’s of the 2014 Carrara Artist Residency gathered at the New York Academy of Art in Tribeca for a panel discussion moderated by Mark Menin. The discussion between Joshua Henderson (MFS 2015), Heena Kim (MFA 2014) and Steve Shaheen (MFA 2005) focused on the ABC Stone sponsored annual Artist Residency in Carrara. The panelists discussed carving in stone for the first time, the pointing system, and carving in the historical shadows of the Renaissance. Works started in Carrara were displayed.

At ABC stone, we love rocks. We happen to think they are beautiful which is why we are intensely interested in the fluidity of human emotion that can be realized through shaping them. As a means of sustaining and promoting the use of stone as an artistic medium, we work closely with many of today’s foremost sculptors to support and advance this timeless art form. It is our belief that deepening the awareness of stone commensurately widens respect for this venerable medium and the millennia-old human tradition of transforming it as a means of expression and storytelling.
