On Monday, March 2nd, Visions of Spring opened at National Sculpture Society‘s Gallery in New York City. The juried show features the works of 13 contemporary sculptors and is on view through May 8. Jurors were Roger Martin (Albemarle, NC); Gary Lee Price (Springville, UT); and Sandra Shaw (Newhall, CA); all Fellows of National Sculpture Society.
The works in the show embrace the theme of spring as a season of birth, new growth, and renewal. The thirteen artists in the exhibition have interpreted the season in figurative, animal and organic sculptural forms. Visions of Spring is the Society’s 4th exhibition in its gallery and caps the organization’s first year at its new midtown Manhattan location. Previous exhibitions highlighted works from NSS’ collection; sculptures from its Northern and Southern California Sculpture Communities; and prize winners from National Sculpture Society’s 86th Annual Awards Exhibition. The works on display in all the exhibitions represent the diverse styles, backgrounds and disciplines of NSS members and Associates.
Sculptors featured in Visions of Spring are: Richard Blake, FNSS; Paige Bradley, FNSS; Jeremy Bradshaw; Phyllis Mantik deQuevedo; Lee Hutt, FNSS; Walter Matia, FNSS; Olga Nielsen, NSS; Mardie Rees, NSS; Rosetta, FNSS; Ann Rosow-Lucchesi; Stefan Savides, NSS; LeRoy Transfield, NSS; and Jeremiah D. Welsh, NSS.
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 designate the types 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.
