Gravestone Art and Symbolism

Just in time for Halloween, in a joint program presented with the Long Branch Historical Association, Lorna and Phil Wooldridge of Wise Owl Workshops present an interpretation of gravestone symbolism from family burial plots to elaborate rural cemeteries of the Victorian Era, through to the Memorial Parks of the 20th Century.  Using stories, photos and humorous examples from cemeteries near and far, they will discuss the meanings of gravestone art and the techniques and skills of the early slate and sandstone carvers, and contrast them with today's techniques such as laser etching.  The programs will conclude with an opportunity for questions and a photographic tour of some surrounding cemeteries.  Light refreshments will be served.  This program is free and open to the public.
