Studio 80 + Sculpture Grounds is a vibrant community environment dedicated to arts education and appreciation on the Connecticut shoreline. Our mission is to create a bond between art, nature & people by inspiring and promoting participation in the arts. We host our annual Summer Sculpture Showcase for our community to creatively engage, inspire and interact. We are reaching out to you, friends and fellow artists, to share this Call for Entry among your peers and artistic communities in hopes of expanding our vision to enlighten and enrich.
The Summer Sculpture Showcase, which will be on display from June 8 – October 26, 2019, is part of a year-round outdoor sculptural exhibit on 4.5 acres of beautifully landscaped gardens located along the banks of the Lieutenant River in the historic, art-centric community of Old Lyme, Connecticut. This annual exhibition has featured the selected sculptural works of over 60 acclaimed artists and has experienced tremendous success – reaching an audience of over 4,000 visitors throughout each of the 2015-2018 summer seasons.
This 5th annual Summer Sculpture Showcase offers a unique opportunity for established artists to exhibit their work in an interactive location, while also effectively creating a dynamic exhibition within the expansive Sculpture Gardens where discovery is limitless. This call for entry invites artists to submit up to four large or small-scale outdoor sculptural works, as well as proposals for site-specific/ecological installations. The deadline for submissions is May 3, 2019 and artists will be notified of acceptance the second week of May 2019.
