The three day Sculpture Showcase and Arts Event will open on Friday 3rd November until Sunday 5th November from 10 am - 5pm daily.
As part of the Society’s ‘Understanding Sculpture’ programme of events, the exhibition will be a dynamic presentation of the art form, with both 3D and 2D works of art and will include sketches and paintings.
Various demonstrations are planned on Saturday and Sunday with visitors able to see sculptures being created, meet the sculptors to discuss their creative process and watch videos covering different styles and techniques. The SSS members range from talented emerging sculptors to full time renowned professionals.
A wide range of sculptures in all sizes and in various materials including glass, metal, bronze, resins, clay, stone and found objects will be on display including classical, contemporary and abstract styles suitable for indoor and outdoor display. This diverse range of sculptures will form the central part of the exhibition, along with a wide range of paintings and sketches all displayed in this spacious and light former church. All sculptures and paintings on display will be for sale.
The winner of the Surrey Sculpture Society Prize for New and Emerging Artists 2017 will be announced at the Landmark event and featured at the exhibition. The purpose of the award is to encourage talented emerging sculptors, with the prize going to a sculptor who has shown individuality, creativity and flair in a 3D medium. The award is made in association with The Art Academy London, which was founded with the purpose of benefiting society through art and art education.
