Elected Sculptor Membership

The National Sculpture Society’s Membership Committee will review all applications for Elected Sculptor membership. Applications recommened by the Committee will be voted on by the entire voting membership.

The applicant is encouraged to submit the focus of their work rather than the range of their work. Commercial success and public placements are not a requirement.

The applicant should submit only their best work, quality over quantity. Work done in workshops or instructional settings should not be submitted. Works in clay and wax are permitted, but completed works should be included. Fired clay, plaster, stone, wood, steel, bronze, resin and other permanent materials are considered complete.

The sculpture should be photographed against a contrasting, non-distracting background, the camera should be on a tripod, lighting should enhance the form, not flatten it. View “Photographing Your Artwork” by Andy Lay Photography.
