Fellows Online Invitational
The National Sculpture Society (NSS) is pleased to present the Fellows Online Invitational featuring the work of 42 NSS Fellows.
The Fellows Online Invitational includes major public monuments; private commissions; works from museum and corporate collections; and limited-edition sculptures. Materials include traditional bronze, carved wood and marble, paper and terracotta. The variety of styles and subject matter reflect the diverse thinking and ingenuity of NSS Fellows.
NSS Fellows are nominated by a majority vote of the Board and the affirmative vote of two-thirds of the Fellows and Directors voting at a General Meeting. Criteria for consideration of election to membership as a Fellow include: professional development in the field of Sculpture, participation in the Sculpture Community, educational contributions to Sculpture, and participation in the National Sculpture Society.
Each sculptor has provided a link to their individual websites so that viewers may see more of their artwork. The Fellows Online Invitational is a way of experiencing artwork created by some of America’s finest sculptors.

National Sculpture Society was founded in New York City in 1893 by a group of America’s most prominent sculptors. Its members have created much of this country’s public sculpture, coins, and medals since the late 1800s. It is the oldest organization of professional sculptors in the United States and has been hosting exhibitions for over a century. Fellows (FNSS), Elected Members (NSS), and Associates comprise the levels of membership of the organization which is international in scope and appeal. National Sculpture Society is a not-for-profit organization which supports excellence in sculpture through various educational programs including scholarships and grants for emerging artists.
