We are very proud of our members at the National Capital Network of Sculptors. On this page we celebrate their achievements in the art world as well as their contributions to making the world a better place.
May 2019 Congratulations to James W. Cook, ephemeral and multimedia artist whose painting “Autumn Lighting on Othello Street” has been selected by the Multifaith Action Society of British Columbia for inclusion in their 2020 Calendar. The painting is currently on display at the Shenkman Centre in Orleans until May 20.
April 2019 Congratulations to Maria Saracino, polymer clay figurative artist. Her sculpture “The Railroad Traveller” won 1st place in the 3Dimensional category of the international Figurative Art Exhibition by Light Space Time http://www.lightspacetime.art
January 2019 Congratulations to Jim Lawrence, wood sculptor and retired scientist. Technology he developed for testing shellfish for certain paralytic algal toxins became law in the European Union. Member countries must now use the method (affectionately known as the “Lawrence” method) for resolving trade disputes involving shellfish. It has a world-wide impact as well and applies to any trade disputes with other countries who export shellfish to the EU. The method is already the official testing method of the World Health Organization for these toxins in shellfish. Enjoy your oysters, mussels, clams, Coquille St. Jacques, etc. …!
