SCULPTURE UNBOUND & DIMENSIONS, a double header for Friday night in Penn Quarter, Washington, DC

The Washington Project for the Arts/Corcoran and the Washington Sculptor's Group present SCULPTURE UNBOUND, an exhibition of work stretching the boundaries of the field of sculpture.

I know several of the artists in these two sculpture exhibitions; Betsy Packard who's work I've long admired and own, Connie Fleres, Mary Early, Foon Sham, Anita Walsh and Margaret Boozer are a few of the 43 exhibiting artists in Sculpture Unbound. I plan to go to the reception tomorrow night as well as see the Zenith Gallery opening of "DIMENSIONS - Women Sculptors of the Washington DC Metropolitan Area." Both galleries are in the Penn Quarter District near the MCI center at Gallery Place metro.

SCULPTURE UNBOUND is an exhibition featuring the work of 43 contemporary sculptors from the DC region.
Juried by Glenn Harper, editor of Sculpture Magazine, Sculpture Unbound showcases experimental sculptural pieces. Juror, Glenn Harper will also lead a gallery talk on the night of the opening at 7:30 pm.
