Nol Putnam has just come out with a new book "Beauty in the Shadows" about the history and beauty of the gates and iron work at the National Cathedral in Washington, DC. The sculptor was a major force in the production of iron gates and decorative elements that were created for the cathedral. He and other artists forged massive decorative work which make the Cathedral a true showplace of the arts. Nol has worked on this book for more than a decade and it finally has come to fruition.
R. H. Ballard Gallery is proud to hold a signing of this newly released book on December 7th from 2 - 5 pm in Washington, VA on the day of that towns annual "Christmas in Little Washington" following the parade. The gallery represents Nol Putnam's sculpture in their Gallery and their Artifacts-on-Main space.
