Many great and exciting
things are happening at the ISC. Our Figuratively Speaking
conference, held at Grounds For Sculpture in July, was a smashing success
for the 140+ attendees. It was short (a single day) and inexpensive ($100)
but packed with excitement and content. We will continue to examine this
A gathering of regional
sculptors groups, which also took place at the conference, was extremely
exciting. We formed a task force to examine what the ISC can do for sculptors
groups and what they can do for the ISC. We are aware of many regional/local
groups all around the world but do not know all of you. Please send your
contact information to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We want to include your group in future discussions.
On that same weekend
we celebrated the opening of our beautiful juried members show at
Grounds For Sculpture. Many of the artists were present to meet and chat
with the hundreds of visitors.
