88th Annual Awards Exhibition
National Sculpture Society is pleased to announce the opening of the 88th Annual Awards Exhibition at Brookgreen Gardens in Pawleys Island, SC on June 12. The juried show features the figurative works of 55 contemporary sculptors and is on view through August 22. The 17 prize winners from the show will then exhibit their work in the Award Winners Exhibition in the NSS Gallery from October 4 to December 10 in New York City.
The Annual Awards Exhibition is National Sculpture Society’s most popular show. Hundreds of artists apply to the juried competition which offers thousands of dollars in cash prizes. The variety of subject matter and media exhibited represents the diverse styles, backgrounds, and disciplines of NSS members. Fellows (FNSS), Elected Members (NSS), and Associates make up the levels of sculptor membership in the organization, which is international in scope and appeal. National Sculpture Society is dedicated to promoting excellence in sculpture that is inspired by nature. Highlights of the exhibition include a basketball team in a pre-game huddle, a sneering pugilist, a drowsy rhinoceros named Aristotle, and varying depictions of abolitionist, Harriet Tubman and civil rights activist, John Lewis.
