The National Capital Network of Sculptors is a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting sculpture in Ottawa. Through our exhibitions and other activities we raise public awareness of sculptors, their techniques and the themes of their work. Our 18th annual Sculpture Exhibit, DIMENSIONS is two weeks away and we are excited to be showing over 120 sculptures by local artists in a huge variety of mediums and styles.
Besides strolling around the collection of sculptural works and meeting the artists, you are invited to attend one of several demonstrations and presentations. At 1:00 pm on Sunday, October 23rd, we are honoured to have guest artist and speaker, David Clendining talking about the process of doing bronze monuments from concept to casting and the importance of art in society. David is the owner and operator of Summit Studios. Based out of the National Capital Region (Ottawa/Gatineau, Canada), Summit Studios has displays, sculptures and installations in Museums and Public areas across the nation and around the world. In Ottawa, you can see David’s bronze work on Conferderation Blvd. and the Gargoyles on Parliament Hill.
You will have the rare opportunity to see the oil clay carved marquette of his life size bronze, Merchant Marines Monument and the original carve of Animals in War Monument. Don’t miss this unique opportunity, Sunday, October 23rd at 1:00 pm.
