The Texas Society of Sculptors opened their eleventh annual summer show in the Georgetown Public Library June 24. The exhibit, hosted by the Library with sponsorship from the City of Georgetown Arts and Culture Board, showcases more than 60 works of art by Texas artists.
The exhibit will be on display through September 21. Most of the pieces in the exhibit are available for purchase.
The public is invited to an artists’ reception and awards ceremony for the exhibit on Sunday, July 15 at 1 p.m. on the second floor of the Library. Awards to be given include People’s Choice and Librarians’ Choice awards based on votes by library visitors or staff. Through July 11, library visitors can ask a staff member for a ballot, and vote for their three favorite pieces.
Additional awards will include First, Second, and Third prize, as well as Honorable Mention in Wood, Ceramic, and Mixed Media. Those awards are all determined by the juror for the exhibit; this year’s distinguished juror is Katie Robinson Edwards, curator at the Umlauf Sculpture Garden in Austin.
Members of the Texas Society of Sculptors will demonstrate varied sculpture techniques in the lobby of the Library on Saturday, September 15 from 1 to 3 p.m. Several of this year’s featured sculptors will demonstrate their techniques and processes in varied media.
