Following the three previous ones in a decade’s time, the Symposium is a difficult yet wonderful project. Its aim is to make the neat white crystalline marble of Thassos known, through the carving of sculpture works which will remain in the carving place forming sculpture parks. Many visitors discovered the Art surrounded by the natural insular scenery and the formation of stone to sculpture which came from the earth. Artists worked in situ and delivered equal in number works, all made of the white crystalline marble of Thassos, known since antiquity. The pieces will remain in the Park of Thassos where summer workshops are run by Greek and foreign sculptors. This year’s invited sculptors were: Emil Adamec, Patty Sonville, an anonymous artist, Paul Doine, Jocelyn Pratt, Sylvia Loew and Nora Valdez.
