Award-winning sculptor and author DJ Garrity will conduct a Garden Sculpture Workshop at the South Shore Art Center from 9 am – 3:30 pm on April 10, 11, and 12, and will give a kick off talk on Wednesday, April 8, from 6 – 7:30.  The South Shore Art Center is located at 119 Ripley Road in Cohasset.  The artist, who currently divides his time between France and West Ireland, is the former Sculptor in Residence of The Mount Rushmore National Memorial.  Garrity developed the hands-on workshop at Mount Rushmore as an interpretive training program in collaboration with the National Park Service of America.  Based on his book The Rhythms of Stone, the artist leads participants with no previous experience in a creative process using simple hand tools to create their own unique sculptures in stone for the home, garden, or gallery.  Workshop fee is $475, including materials and the use of hand tools.  Reservations may be made by calling 781-383-2787, or emailing info@ssac.org.  The artist talk is free and open to the public, but reservations are suggested.

Come learn some of the history and circumstances behind the country’s current but outdated environmental laws, how the original scope and intentions of these laws may no longer match the scope of the problems we face today, and the lawmaking challenges we now face as we seek to address the mounting environmental risks posed by deepwater drilling, natural gas fracking, and climate change.
