In the mid-1980s six Bay Area sculptors (Gale Wagner, John Fick, Greg Wescott, Chuck Splady, Don Rich and Luigi Testa) wanted to meet and talk about their work in a group that supported and and encouraged their careers. From their informal meetings grew the organization that became "Pacific Rim Sculptors Group", and which in 2016 formally achieved non-profit status and became "Pacific Rim Sculptors", a Chapter of the International Sculpture Center.
The listings below include prior exhibitions and other art-related events of the organization. Where possible, links are added to photographic or other documentation of the exhibitions and events.
