The National Capital Network of Sculptors (NCNS) is a non-profit corporation founded in 1984, with a mandate to increase awareness and appreciation for the sculptural arts in the National Capital region.
It draws its membership from a wide artistic community in the greater Ottawa area, which consists of both professional and talented amateur sculptors. Our member’s work ranges from figurative to abstract to installation art and incorporates such mediums as glass, stone, wood, bronze, steel, plaster, clay and mixed media.
The Network holds the following as its objectives:
- To encourage and promote the development of sculpture.
- To encourage and promote the artistic development of members through exhibitions, workshops and the dissemination of technical and other relevant information.
- To provide a means of communication and information exchange among sculptors.
- To promote public awareness and appreciation of sculpture in the National Capital region and elsewhere.
The NCNS provides a forum for sculptors to meet routinely to share information and build group support for their collective body of work.
Funded principally by its membership, the NCNS’s operations are wide-ranging. Activities include monthly meetings with a presentation and open discussions, and the organization and promotion of an group shows throughout the year.
