Ten Years of Stone Sculpting October 1-15, 2011

Comedy & Tragedy by Chuck Dilzer

This exhibit is a collaborative exhibition celebrating the past ten years of creativity from acclaimed stone sculptor, Heide Messing-McDonald and participants in her stone sculpting workshops at the Arts Center. Born in Kassel, Germany, Heide Messing-McDonald has lived in Quebec since 1953 and has been actively involved in the fine arts community since 1977. Though the first phase of her career was devoted to painting, engraving, and silkscreen techniques, it wasn’t until the early 1990s that she discovered her true calling in stone sculpting. For the past ten years, Heide has been teaching workshops and sharing her talent and expertise with participants here at the Arts Center in downtown Plattsburgh.
