Are you involved in a rock/gem/mineral club? We're interested in learning about special presentations and events your club has hosted, to feature in a new blog post, 'Club Corner.'
The report could be about a demonstration, a group outing or dig, community support project, or special activities held during an annual show. I invite you to send me a few photos and a short description - including the names of any featured guests or organizations - of the event, as well as the name of your club and web address or social media page. Email the above information to me at firstname.lastname@example.org to have your club featured in Club Corner.
Learning About Glyptic Art
We are kicking of R&G's Club Corner with a report from the Mother Lode Mineral Society of Modesto, California. During a recent meeting, the club welcomed glyptic artist Jack Hoque from Medford, Oregon. Jack did a demonstration of his work, intaglio carving, and answered questions from the nearly 90 people in attendance.
Rock & Gem columnist Bob Rush shares more of this demonstration in the Bench Tips column of the May issue of Rock & Gem. Learn more about Jack Hoque and view examples of his work in an earlier article written by Rush >>>
