Homage to Saint Joseph, is a sculptural exhibition by Connecticut artist, Stephen J. Balkun. Wood is the medium of Stephen’s work. He considers himself an artist and a craftsman. When carving, he thinks of Saint Joseph (the patron saint of craftsmen) and likens the activity to a form of prayer and meditation.
During the hands-on artist workshop, Stephen will demonstrate his method of woodcarving and teach participants about wood selection, types of tools, and how to use them to create carvings of their own. There is no fee for the workshop, but RSVP is required. Please contact Patricia Curtis to register.
