RWA Sculpture Open Exhibition
16 Mar – 2 Jun 19
In a change from our usual biennial open drawing exhibition, Drawn, 2019 will see an open-submission sculpture exhibition in the main gallery spaces. The Sculpture Open will celebrate the diversity of form, medium and scale in contemporary sculptural practice.
This year’s selection panel comprises of internationally-known sculptors Ann Christopher RA, Daphne Wright and Kate MccGwire, Artistic Director of New Art Centre at Roche Court Stephen Feeke and RWA Academicians Ian Middleton, Simon Hitchens and Dallas Collins.
This year's Open Sculpture Exhibition is sponsored by Fresh Art Fair
The Sculpture Lab
The Sculpture Open will also be accompanied by The Sculpture Lab, a space designed to encourage interaction and participation, welcoming all ages and abilities to come inside: investigate, discuss, test, create and play. More details to follow.
Sculpture Lab is supported by Art UK
