Imago Foundation for the Arts (IFA) will co-host a juried sculpture show with the New England Sculptors Association (NESA) featuring 40 works by 25 regional artists October 18 – November 18. A free, public reception for the artists will be held on Saturday, October 20 from 3 – 6 p.m.

NESA, founded in 1948, is one of the leading sculpture organizations in the country. Artists whose sculpture was selected by NESA for the exhibit hail from Rhode Island, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Connecticut and Georgia. Craig Anderson of South Kingstown, RI, has created a painted aluminum sculpture, titled, “No. 7,’ and a painted steel work called, “No. 2.” Judith Davis of Portsmouth, RI, has created three iron-on-wood sculptures, “Bollywood,” “America’s Cup” and “Convivencia.”

A wide variety of media is represented, including painted aluminum and steel, alabaster, resin, soapstone, ceramic raku, wood, stone, iron, bronze, paper, clay, mixed media, silk, cast glass, marble, plaster and copper. Both wall-hanging and free-standing sculptures are included.
