Summer stone sculpture event for Nelson

The local sculpture scene in our region is getting a further boost.

An international stone carving symposium is being hosted in Nelson later this summer.

Local sculptor John McKinnon is one of the organisers. Four Canadian and four international artists will work on their pieces outside the rail station building in Railtown.

They will have just three weeks to complete their work.
