For the holiday season Boston Sculptors will host their annual Group Show featuring a selection of exciting and contemporary work by some of the most prominent sculptors of New England. In conjunction with the group show, and as a fundraiser for the gallery, Boston Sculptors will have available Paper.Scissors.Sculpture, a limited edition boxed set of digitally printed do-it-yourself paper sculptures, created by each of the members of Boston Sculptors. This fundraiser is an essential component to cover the cost of operations of Boston Sculptors Gallery. The Group Show exhibit and fundraiser will run from December 3 - December 24 with an opening reception Friday December 3, 5-8 pm. All events will be held at the Boston Sculptors Gallery located at 486 Harrison Avenue in Boston’s emerging SoWa arts district.
As Boston’s only venue devoted exclusively to sculpture, Boston Sculptors Gallery features works in diverse media including traditional sculpture in stone, steel, wood and bronze as well as installation, multi-media and public/outdoor artworks. (For a full listing of artist work see www.bostonsculptors.com.) Gallery artists include 15 original members (Laura Baring-Gould, Murray Dewart, Beth Galston, Peter DeCamp Haines, Peter Lipsitt, Larry Pollans, Robert Schelling, Julia Shepley, Maggie Stark, Margaret Swan, William Wainwright, Kitty Wales, Joseph Wheelwright, Leslie Wilcox, Dan Wills) as well as 13 new members (Michael Beatty, Lorey Bonante, Christopher Frost, Matthew T. Hincman, Jim Henderson, Niho Kozuru, Michelle Lougee, David Phillips, Nancy Selvage, Pat Shannon, Marilu Swett, Ann Torke, Ellen Wetmore.)
Founded in 1992, Boston Sculptors is an artist-run gallery dedicated to presenting innovative, challenging sculpture and installation works. Originally located in a West Newton former chapel, the 18 original members inaugurated over 90 shows which received numerous accolades (The Boston Globe, Boston Herald, Art New England, Sculpture Magazine, Art in America) and several Best of Boston Awards (Suburban Gallery Space 1995, Boston Globe Artist Exhibition 1995, 1999.) In catalyzing prominent local, regional and international exhibitions, the gallery forged a significant niche within the Boston art community. Nick Capasso, Associate Curator of the DeCordova Museum and Sculpture Park, credited the group with the following: “The Boston Sculptors, one of the few cooperative sculpture galleries in the country, is among the most stimulating venues for three dimensional work.”
Boston Sculptors is open Tuesday through Saturday from 11 am- 6 pm at 486 Harrison Avenue.
All opening receptions will be on the first Friday of each month.
