Fantasy Figures by Terry Stone

Hagerstown, MD- The holiday season arrives at the Washington County Museum of Fine Arts with the opening of the exhibition Fantasy Figures by Terry Stone in the Fulton Decorative Arts Gallery. The exhibition will run from November 8, 2008 until January 18, 2009 and will showcase Ms. Stone's whimsical and highly detailed figurines, including Santas and fairy tale characters. An opening reception will be held on Sunday, November 16, 2008 from 2:30pm to 4pm, light refreshments will be served.
A native of Sharpsburg, Maryland, Terry Stone is a self-taught artist who uses clay to sculpt her figures and vintage clothing and accessories to embellish them. Her attention to detail in both the sculpting of the figures - faces and the choice of clothing and accessories imbibes the figures with an individual personality. This ability to create works with such strong personalities has given Ms. Stone a loyal following of collectors, many of which will be lending pieces for the exhibition.
The exhibition will feature an assortment of Ms. Stone's figures, including a vignette of Snow White and the Seven Dwarves. Santa figures, which are Ms. Stone's most popular figurines, will be prominently displayed, making this a perfect exhibition to visit during the holiday season.
