Call for Artists: New England Sculptors on Review

30 Temple Street.jpg

On Sunday, May 4, 2014, from noon until 5 PM, sculptors from the New England states will gather at the 30 Temple Street Plaza in Nashua, New Hampshire to meet the public and show and sell their work at the first New England gathering of sculptors in the state.  In case of inclement weather the exhibition will be moved inside.

The 2014 New England Sculptors on Review Exhibition and Sale will focus on medium and large sculptures suitable for the home, office and garden.  At the same time, the focus will be on the sculptors themselves, with the opportunity to interact with the public attending the exhibition and gain expanded recognition through the publicity leading up to the event.

Sculptors on Review is open to both emerging and established sculptors in Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts and Rhode Island.  All entries will be juried by John M. Weidman, sculptor and co-founder of the Andres Institute of Art in Brookline, NH.

 The deadline for registration is March 1, 2014.  The registration form with instructions is available below.  Registration fee payment must be mailed via check with the completed form, or by credit card at the link below. Registration and sales commission fees are extremely reasonable.  All commission fees are tax deductible and will support the work of the Nashua International Sculpture Symposium. Nashua is the first city in New Hampshire to hold a symposium where artists come from all over the world to create great works of public art for the enrichment, enjoyment, and enhancement of the community.

Sculptors on Review is organized by MG& Associates, City Arts Nashua, the Nashua International Sculpture Symposium, and is hosted by RJ Finlay & Company at their 30 Temple Street headquarters in Downtown Nashua.
