NWSSA is an association of stone sculptors that was founded in 1984 by Meg Pettibone in Seattle. Their first symposium was in 1986 in the Methow Valley east of the Cascade Mountains in Washington State and they have since grown to include stone sculptors and associates throughout the western US, Canada, and other parts of the world. NWSSA’s mission is to nurture the community of stone sculptors by developing educational opportunities, providing a support system to members, and facilitating interaction with regional, national, and international communities. We anticipate the exhibit in our lovely gardens to be exceptional and definitely one not to miss. For more information about NWSSA go to www.nwssa.org.
