RWA Sculpture Open Exhibition

16 Mar – 2 Jun 19

RWA Sculpture Open Exhibition

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 includes Academicians Ian Middleton and Simon Hitchens, internationally-known artist Daphne Wright and Director of New Art Centre at Roche Court, Stephen Feeke.

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.

Information for Artists
Submissions will be open from Thursday 3 January – Thursday 7 February 2019, via the OESS System, which can be accessed by clicking here. We welcome submissions from sculptors of any background working in any medium including but not limited to bronze and other metals, resin, ceramics, wood, plaster, stone and glass. We welcome submissions of both 3D and wall-based works. Full details to follow.
