Cloudstone Sculpture Park & Gallery will be open to the public 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Aug. 31 and Sept. 1. They are located on Whidbey Island at 5056 Cloudstone Lane, Freeland.

Cloudstone Sculpture Park is 20 acres surrounded by nature and filled with gorgeous carved stone, monumental 12-ton Dakota mahogany granite sculptures and steel structures over 20 feet high, according to a press release.

The gallery showcases exquisite lapis lazuli carvings, stunning marbles and magnificent bronzes.

All of this is the creative work of one man, Hank Nelson.

Cloudstone Sculpture is open to the public only twice a year, in late April and late August. At other times tours are available by appointment. The entry fee is $10 per person.
