NEW CANAAN — From Silvermine Arts Center: “A Story in Stone” is a new documentary exploring the fine-art printing process of stone lithography. As legend has it, the process of stone lithography came about in Germany in 1798 as a result of spilled soup. Alois Senefelder supposedly noticed the areas where his chicken soup met his limestone table surface repelled water. This led to experiments using grease crayons to draw on limestone. When the stone was wiped off, the greasy areas would hold ink, leading to an inexpensive form of printmaking. “A Story in Stone” will premiere Sunday at 3 p.m. at the center, 1037 Silvermine Road.
