July to October (Tues., Wed., Thur.)
Stone Carving Project At Uxbridge Historical Centre
Artist Fly Freeman will be carving on site: July to October, Tuesday and Wednesday Mornings (10am - noon), Thursday afternoons (1pm - 4pm).
The Arts and Visual Enhancement Committee (AVEC) has selected artist Fly Freeman to undertake the “Uxbridge Story in Stone” project, a massive stone carving that will be installed in downtown Uxbridge. Four carved panels will tell the story of the history of the town and the establishment of our trails.
The artist is on site three days a week working on one of the four 800-lb. blocks of stone. Fly Freeman brings a wealth of experience to the Historical Centre as she shapes the blocks of Indiana Limestone with the same type of hand-held tools that have been used by stone masons for generations. There are no compressors, power tools or electric grinders to create noise or dust. The work area is roped off but the public can easily view and converse with Fly in complete safety.
A special, free introduction to stone carving is available Thursday evenings at 6:30pm. Stone, tools and safety glasses will be provided. All are welcome and no registration is required.
Uxbridge Historical Centre, 7239 Concession 6, Uxbridge. The Centre is open for tours June 4 - Sept. 25, 10am - 4pm, Wednesday to Sunday (closed on holidays).
