Join us for a conversation with artisans, designers and contractors about the art and architecture of stone. Using photographs and artistic renderings as a guide, “Art and Architecture of Stone” will be an open discussion between Rick Nelson, a Maine licensed architect, Arek Galle, a landscape architect, and Dan Ucci, a stone mason/artist. Rick, Arek and Dan often collaborate on Knickerbocker Group projects that entail incorporating stone design elements, or adapting to existing stone conditions, into the architecture or landscape of a home. They will share examples of the various considerations when working with stone, overcoming challenges, and making the most out of integrating stone into your life in an artful way.
Rick Nelson, AIA, is Architect Manager at Knickerbocker Group. Arek Galle, RLA, AICP, is a Landscape Architect at BETA Group. Dan Ucci is a stone mason, artist and the owner of Ledge Hill Creations. Ucci is one of the sculptors participating in the Maine Coast Stone Symposium at the Museum.
The talk will take place inside the Town Hall at the Museum starting at 7 pm on Thursday, August 24. A donation of $5 is suggested and proceeds will benefit the Museum’s general operating fund.
The Maine Coast Stone Symposium is made possible with the generous support our partners:
