Past Exhibitions and Shows

Pacific NW Sculptors maintains a show committee which is tasked with finding and making arrangements for members to exhibit their work, demonstrate their techniques or both. Shows may be juried or unjuried. Members gain exposure, important additions to their exhibit history, experience participating in art shows and possible sales. Committee members gain experience approaching and working with galleries, museums, art shows and other exhibit venues. The public is exposed to a broad range of sculptural work and techniques and hopefully a better understanding of what goes into a piece of sculpture. The following are a listing of past events in which finished work was displayed. To see a listing of events in which techniques are demonstrated see our Educational Events page. For a listing of upcoming and current events see the Exhibitions and Calls page.
