About the Exhibit

This exhibition is the first in this region of the world to feature the use of cutting-edge digital technology on large scale marble, with hand refining. It consists of nine Italian marble sculptures all milled digitally by a huge seven axis milling machine at Garfagnana Innovazione for participants in the Digital Stone Project artist workshops/ symposiums/residencies.

The process makes it possible for young artists to achieve stunning work using a combination of virtual-space computer technology, together with traditional hand refining, on one of the most ancient and enduring materials in the world.

Within the Weight of Action features work by seven University of Alberta trained artists who all studied sculpture at the U  of A over a span of many years (1986 – 2020). 

Artists in the show:
Kelly Johner
Carson Tarnasky
Alicia Proudfoot
Thomas Fenton
Marilyn Langevin
