Sculpture in the South returns to Summerville’s Azalea Park May 17 and 18. Show organizers anticipate a great turnout to mark the 16th Annual Show and Sale. This year’s show marks the beginning of a new era with many returning and new artists to the Show and Sale in attendance.
“We have expanded our membership and we are getting the word out that we are here and still ‘kickin.’ As part of our mission of arts education, we are reaching out to all schools, including colleges, to become members and join us for a great weekend and beyond.” said board chair Heather Leiterman.
Through the creation of Summerville’s Permanent Public Sculpture Collection, Sculpture in the South provides access to fine art for all to enjoy. Since its inception, the organization has facilitated the installation of more than 25 sculptures in the public domain. The number is constantly growing with the installation of the B.I.R.D.S. Project subjects.
The Show and Sale offers one-on-one interaction with artists and hands-on enjoyment of sculpture.
This year’s event will take place Saturday, May 17 from 10 a.m. — 6 p.m. and Sunday, May 18 from 10 a.m. — 5 p.m. in Azalea Park. Tickets will be available at the gate and are $5 for adults. Children under 12 are admitted free with a paying adult.
