Sculpture Exhibition

Downeast Sculpture Exhibition and Artist coming to ECU

The 2011 Downeast Sculpture Exhibition, featuring artists from across the Southeast, will return to ECU and Greenville March 4.

The exhibition, which will run through April 1, will feature indoor artwork at Emerge Gallery, while outdoor artwork will be displayed in front of ECU’s Mendenhall Student Center and at the corner of Cotanche and Reade streets. Three new sculpture pads are being prepared between Joyner Library and Mendenhall Student Center for new artwork.

An opening reception to kickoff the exhibit will be held on March 4 from 6-9 p.m. at Emerge Gallery. On April 1, a closing reception from 6-9 p.m. at Emerge will include the awarding of cash to entry winners.

Digital entries were due on Feb. 5 to be showcased in the month-long exhibit.

The Mendenhall Gallery on the second floor of Mendenhall Student Center will feature this year’s juror, Shawn Morin. Morin, who is head of the sculpture program at Bowling Green State University, will also be demonstrating stone carving for the Sculpture Guild at ECU.
