Paintings & Photographs Hidden in Stones


Have you ever cut open a mundane stone, and found what looks like an original Ansel Adams photograph or a Claude Monet painting? Perhaps images of landscapes, faces, animals, people, or aquatic scenes were revealed to you.

On this night, we will be visiting the “Louvre de Roches” guided by long-time CCRMC Club member, Ken Rogers.

Photographer, artist, rockhound, and previous “spook,” Ken is constantly searching for beautiful, or whimsical, art as he cuts chunks of rock, looks at the lapidary work of others, and, perhaps, just a rock lying on the ground.

Ken’s exciting and colorful career in U.S. Army Intelligence and as a photojournalist coupled with education and experience in the jewelry industry has made him an expert in these fields. When photography went digital, radically changing the photography industry, Ken reluctantly retired and returned to some of his earlier loves, including rocks and jewelry.

Guests are always welcome
