ISC CHAPTERS

ISC Chapters are groups of sculptors and sculpture enthusiasts, located in specific geographic areas, who serve as a local voice for the ISC. Chapter groups provide opportunities such as local exhibitions, networking, and sculpture resources for like-minded individuals to engage and collaborate.

The ISC lends generous support to its Chapter groups by providing the following:

• A 20% discount on ISC membership to Chapter members
• Panel sessions at ISC conference to discuss their works in addition to designated spaces for chapters to utilize for promotional purposes.
• Complimentary Sculpture magazines for distribution at Chapter events & exhibitions
• Substantial discounts on Sculpture subscriptions & ISC memberships for Chapter event attendees
• Peer-to-peer guidance, assisting in the development of Chapter events and organizational development through a dedicated ISC Board liaison as well as connections to other ISC Chapters around the world
• Dedicated space on the ISC’s award-winning website, www.sculpture.org (which receives more than 100,000 hits per day!)
• Annual opportunities for coverage in Sculpture magazine
• Opportunities to market Chapter events & exhibitions through the ISC newsletter, which is distributed to more than 10,000 individuals each month

…and much more.

In addition to these great benefits to the Chapter, Chapter group members also enjoy the many benefits of ISC membership! All Chapter members are required to also be ISC members. ISC membership entitles members to benefits including an individual online portfolio, discounts on ISC events, discounted isc Press publications, and to discounts offered by hundreds of vendors and suppliers listed in the ISC Resource Directory, just to name a few!

Chicago Sculpture International (CSI) is a nonprofit organization consisting of a very diverse group of sculptors. Ranging from installation work, indoor work to large-scale outdoor works, our members support each other and celebrate our differences. We believe in expanding an awareness and appreciation of sculpture both locally and internationally. Founded in 2004 as the first regional chapter of the International Sculpture Center (ISC), CSI is open to any sculptor, art professional, patron, or organization that joins the ISC. Regular meetings offer valuable information on technical, critical or business matters for members. CSI maintains a strong record of organizing professional exhibitions, guest speakers and other events.

The Texas Sculpture Group keeps growing with a current 111 members from across the state and beyond. 2013 was a busy year for TSG, with a full line up of exhibitions and group gatherings. Events included a 'TSG Pop-up Show' at Bill FitzGibbon’s studio in San Antonio, ‘Under the Rotunda’ at the State Capitol, ‘Fresh Dozen’ at Red Arrow Contemporary in Dallas, ‘Process’ at ACC in Austin, an all-members meeting at Itchy Acre’s followed by ‘In-Depth’ at the Art Car Museum in Houston.

Later this year, James Surls will curate the exhibition, 'A Panoramic View: The Texas Sculpture Group' at the Lawndale Arts Center in Houston. Not only is Surls an Honorary Member of the group, but he founded Lawndale in 1979 and we have decided to dedicate this exhibition to the memory of Bert Long, who was a legendary Texas sculptor, friend to many and who helped form Texas Sculpture Group. The exhibition will run August 22- September 27, 2014.
