About the Presenters:
A craftsman and art maker in the outdoors, Dan Snow creates practical, landscape structures and playful, environmental artworks in dry stone. A life-long Vermonter, Dan has traveled widely for more than four decades producing public and private site- specific installations. His handcrafted, hardscape sculptures lead the way in a growing movement toward nature-partnered art.

Whitney Brown, a professional member of The Stone Trust, is a dry-stone waller and writer based in the mountains of southwest Virginia. After a Master’s degree in Folklore from the University of North Carolina, she began spending time out in the hills in Wales to learn the art of dry-stone walling. She then brought those skills home to the US, where she builds custom stone structures and hardscaping for a wide range of clients. Her first book, Between Stone and Sky came out in 2018, and she continues to work and teach in Wales as often as she can. whitneybrownstone.com
