Notice of Sound for RCAC Wood Carving Symposium

Dear Neighbours and Friends,

The Rossland Council for Arts and Culture is hosting a Wood Carving Symposium June 23 to 26.

From 9am to 4:30pm these four days, three carvers will each be creating a new sculpture for Centennial Trail. The area designated for this event is the parking lot next to the Rossland Fine Wine and Spirits store. This is a live sculpting event and chainsaws and power tools will be used. We hope the noise will not be disruptive, however we did want to provide notice. 

This project seeks to connect recreation, art, nature, and culture by showing the development of a sculpture from concept to completion and then displaying the completed sculptures in a natural, non-traditional, and unexpected environment.

The RCAC’s mission is to make Rossland as well known for its art as for its recreation. With this project, our intention is to not only highlight arts and culture in our community but to contribute to our community’s social and economic vibrancy. We hope that by hosting the Wood Carving Symposium in downtown Rossland, not only are we bringing the opportunity for the community to see a sculpture come to life firsthand but to also draw people into surrounding businesses. 

We hope to see you pop by the symposium!
