Museum of Art, University of New Hampshire

Selected Works from the Boston Sculptors Gallery
September 10 – October 19, 2011
Opening Reception: Friday, September 9, 5 – 7 p.m.

Sculpture, by its nature, is three-dimensional. This exhibition, installed both inside the Museum of Art and outside in the adjacent courtyard, features 38 works of art by 18 artists who are members of the landmark cooperative, The Boston Sculptors Gallery. The co-op was founded in 1992, and has become Boston's premier venue for sculpture. Whether on the walls or in the round, inside or out, come and discover the realms of contemporary sculpture. And why Nick Capasso, Associate Curator of the DeCordova Museum and Sculpture Park, states, “The Boston Sculptors Gallery, one of the few cooperative sculpture galleries in the country, is among the most stimulating venues for 3-D contemporary art in the Northeast.”

Artists featured in the exhibition include: B. Amore, Castleton, VT; Caroline Bagenal, Newburyport, MA; Kim Bernard, North Berwick, ME; Benjamin Cariens, Somerville, MA; Gillian Christy, Providence, RI; Murray Dewart, Brookline, MA; Donna Dodson, Jamaica Plain, MA; Sally S. Fine, Boston, MA; Mags Harries, Cambridge, MA; Sarah Hutt, Boston, MA; Peter Lipsitt, Brookline, MA; Andy Moerlein, Bow, NH; Julia Shepley, Brookline, MA; Margaret Swan, Melrose, MA; Marilu Swett, Jamaica Plain, MA; Hannah Verlin, Somerville, MA; Ellen Wetmore, Fitchburg, MA; and Dan Wills, Marshfield, MA.
