WEST RUTLAND — SculptFest brings an examination of “historical markers” to the Carving Studio and Sculpture Center this weekend.
The center will hold an opening reception for the festival from 5 to 8 p.m. Saturday. The festival runs through Oct. 27. The public is invited to view the installations and meet the artists at the event, which will also feature refreshments, live music and, at 7 p.m., the drawing for winners of the 2013 Fine Art Raffle.
Guest curator Phil Whitman of Barre selected nine sculptors to do work on the theme of historical markers, placing site-specific installations in the former quarry and manufacturing area.
