    Stone Quarry Hill Art Park

    I had an amazing residency at the |//http://sqhap.org|Stone Quarry Hill Art Park| in Cazenovia, NY. While I was there I created my newest sculpture Outcropping. I also had the great honor of spending time with Dorothy Reister (happy 100th Birthday Dorothy!), the park's founder. Her vision has helped to shape the park into a place where art and nature meet on equal terms. Her studio is endlessly inspiring to work in, and her sculptures and studies, which cover the walls and shelves are worthy of close examination.

    If you get a chance, go check it out, and take advantage of the miles of trails, wide views and many sculptures which share a home at the Art Park.
