Screen­ing Nol

Rappahannock News - - FROM PAGE ONE -

The new film doc­u­men­tary “Forg­ing Art” — to be screened Sun­day, Nov. 11, at 3 p.m. at the Lit­tle Wash­ing­ton Theatre — takes a peek in­side White Oak Forge in Huntly, where artist-black­smith Nol Put­nam em­ploys cen­turies- old tech­niques to make art out of iron and steel.

Over four plus decades, Nol has bent metal into iconic pieces such as his trio of Gates for the Wash­ing­ton Na­tional Cathe­dral, whim­si­cal in­door sculp­tures and col­or­ful Pop­pies in honor of the Far­ri­ers who served in WWI, and more re­cently a stately pri­vate com­mis­sioned sculp­ture ti­tled “Raven.”

Nol talks art, mythol­ogy and mak­ing metal move in the short doc­u­men­tary, a pro­duc­tion of NCITV coowned by Rap­pa­han­nock week­enders Tracy and Mathieu Mazza. A Q&A with Nol will fol­low the screen­ing.

“Forg­ing Art” will be shown Sun­day, Nov. 11.
