SCULPTURE of the PACIFIC RIM
An exhibition organized by the Pacific Rim Sculptors
This is an open-call for sculptors of Pacific Rim areas to submit images of their artwork for consideration by juror & curator Robert Melton for inclusion in the exhibition Sculpture of the Pacific Rim, organized by the non-profit Pacific Rim Sculptors. The exhibition will take place from mid-April to September 2020 in the beautiful new building that is home of the renowned Commonwealth Club of California in San Francisco. An opening reception will celebrate International Sculpture Day (#ISDay).
PACIFIC RIM SCULPTORS (www.PacificRimSculptors.org) is a Chapter of the International Sculpture Center (www.sculpture.org, publisher of Sculpture magazine, and organizer of the annual International Sculpture Conference).
ROBERT MELTON is the Outreach Coordinator / Curator for de Young College Arts Program, a freelance curator and community events art organizer. He is the founder and executive director for Nexus ArtReach Art Collective. He holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in Ethnic Studies and Art History and a Master's degree in Museum Studies with emphasis on curatorship and public programming from San Francisco State University. Melton has curated a variety of art exhibitions and events throughout the San Francisco Bay Area.
THE COMMONWEALTH CLUB receives "a steady stream of national and international political and social notables" that began with Theodore Roosevelt in 1911. It is located on San Francisco's Embarcadero with spectacular views of the waterfront and Bay Bridge (see www.commonwealthclub.org/visit). The exhibition will have great exposure: the Commonwealth Club hosts approximately 500 well-attended events annually.
THE THEME Sculpture of the Pacific Rim is purposely open to encourage broad participation, but the venue will have option of refusal, so artists should consider its ideals ("We only propose to find truth and turn it loose in the world").
ACCEPTABLE WORKS include small to large free-standing, pedestal-mounted, wall-mounted and suspended sculpture, both indoor and outdoor. New media and video installations will be considered.
