2024 Stone Carving Retreat

link here for more info. Sketching in stone.  That’s the best way I know of describing the process I experience when putting chisel to stone.  The original shape of the stone itself seems always faithful to recommend the gesture that’s to be pursued.  This suggested gesture then sets into motion a period of pondering–of envisioning what twists, turns and intertwinings might be held within the stone. Then comes the first tap of the chisel.  And with that first tap, the “conversation” is begun.  As with any good conversation, the pauses prove every bit as rich as the thoughts that are exchanged.  Listening precedes each word that’s spoken  Listening leads to the next tap of the chisel, which is followed yet again by a listening pause.  One thing leads beautifully and mysteriously to another. I love the progressive process of conversing with the stone.  Planes intersect.  Surfaces merge and again part ways.  Forms emerge.  But I must say that I enjoy just as much the simple pleasure of watching the tool marks as they appear in the stone.  Light plays against shadow, smooth against rough.  Like the cross-hatchings made in a drawing by a stick of charcoal, or line work created using pen and ink–just as beautiful are the marks left in stone by differing chisels. Interestingly, the conversation never seems to end.  Even when the chisels have been set to rest, my eyes continue to roam, happily exploring the outcome. — Don Haggerty ______________________________________________________________________

Matzke Art Gallery

Background: For eighteen years, I owned History of the World Fine Art Gallery on the south end of Camano Island. I received my MFA from the University of New York at Albany, NY in 1983. In 2008, the doors opened to my new gallery, Matzke Fine Art Gallery. Our mission is to promote, encourage, and serve as an advocate for fine artists and to make contemporary art a relevant part of our cultural experience.  I expect that this magical acreage will nurture the careers of many artist and provide a place for others to expand their horizons as well.
