A Special Invitation to Washington Sculptors Group Members:
Helen Chason, Director of the Kreeger Museum, Washington DC, and WSG Advisory Board Member, has graciously extended the exhibition Objects from the Studio: The Sculptor’s Process to provide WSG Members the opportunity to experience a special access viewing of the exhibition, the museum, and the Sculpture Garden.
The program will begin promptly at 12:15pm and the interior portion of the tour will conclude at 1:45pm. Members can explore the grounds independently from 1:45 on.
This exhibition brings together maquettes, sketches, and other objects from sculptors’ studios to explore how outdoor sculptures are made, focusing on works from The Kreeger Museum’s Sculpture Garden. The show offers insight into the artistic process, from preliminary drawings to handcrafted models. Artists include Kendall Buster, Richard Deutsch, John L. Dreyfuss, Carol Brown Goldberg, Dalya Luttwak, and Foon Sham.

While it’s nearly impossible to predict the outcome of juried competitions, it’s not difficult to understand that a well-crafted application at least stands a better chance than one that is put together poorly. This workshop will cover some best practices for approaching submissions, including organizing deadlines, paying attention to pertinent details, preparing written materials and images according to required specifications, etc. Getting a handle on these details will help ensure you stay on top of all the opportunities that come up and that you always present your work in the best possible light.
