'step in stone’ launched their Finale

'step in stone’ launched their Finale with a terrific Preview evening at Black Swan Arts.  Frome Mayor Kate Bielby gave out certificates to their young sculpture design competition winners and it was thrilling to see so many people there, appreciating all the dedicated work and talents of the artists and curators.  
 
"Leading up to the Finale, Artists have been working extremely hard and going to great lengths to achieve their ambitious site-specific works.  Amanda Wallwork journeyed into ‘deep time’ (the term used to describe vast unimaginable timescales involved in geological processes), gaining access to microscopic scans donated by the British Geological Survey; part of Duncan Cameron’s work included recording in Fairy Cave Quarry overnight, Sally Kidall spent months over from Australia to create her dramatic Land Art pieces and Cath Bloomfield enlisted the help of rock climber Terry Gifford to attach her Gabion pieces to the sheer vertical rock faces in Fairy Cave Quarry.  We have had a wonderful response and great turn out over the first few days of our Finale.  It’s been very encouraging to see all ages enjoy our quarry artscapes and related indoor exhibitions.  Visitors have been so inspired by the artwork and quarry environments that they have been creating their own guerilla art on site and sending us images of work they’ve since created at home!" 
 
Special Events are running from now until the end of the Finale Festival (18th October) to engage the community, including Family Day in the magical Fairy Cave Quarry this Saturday 10 October, felt workshops with Suzie Gutteridge and Artist Talks with Tessa Farmer.   Don’t miss exploring the arts trail around Somerset Earth Science Centre (open Wednesdays and for all the special events from Sun 11-Sat 17th Oct),

 and the disused and working quarries of Westdown/Asham, Fairy Cave and Halecombe.
 
step in stone has been running since July - building up in 3 steps to its Finale fortnight as part of Somerset Art Weeks Festival ‘Momentum’.

"I had to sign for a new leatherman multitool last week from amazon. Don’t know if it was the value or the knife part though thinking knife part as it said I needed someone 18 or over to sign for it."

"Pass it straight onto your insurance company, claiming to have been hit by a bungee cord whipping about if he let go of it I could understand, but the handle on the mower as he released the cord doesn’t sound right."
