A juried indoor and outdoor exhibition co-sponsored by the Washington Sculptors Group and Annmarie Garden Sculpture Park & Arts Center, a Smithsonian Affiliate

Washington, DC: The Washington Sculptors Group (WSG) announces the opening of Constructed Place, a juried indoor and outdoor exhibition that examines contemporary relationships between viewer and artwork. Selected works demonstrate varying ways of engaging, immersing, and creating a place for viewers, while also creatively constructing spaces within and around which the viewer must navigate both physically and conceptually. The exhibition is being held at Annmarie Garden Sculpture Park & Arts Center, an affiliate of the Smithsonian Institution, and will be on view from March 20 until May 8, 2010.

An opening reception is scheduled for Saturday, March 20 from 6 pm - 9 pm in conjunction with an Annmarie Garden “After Hours” event. It will feature brief remarks by juror Megan Rook-Koepsel, a performance by artist Meaghan Harrison, and an award ceremony. Rook-Koepsel will also provide a juror’s talk on Sunday, April, 25 beginning at 2:00 pm, which will be followed by a guided tour of the sculpture park.

The WSG invited Rook-Koepsel to serve as juror for this exhibition. Speaking about her selections, she stated, “The works in the exhibition address the notion of a “constructed place” on several different levels – many are designed to actually become in themselves a constructed site such that the viewer can actually enter into and experience new spaces immersively.”

WSG member artists selected to participate in this exhibition are: Sarah Allison, Jessica Braiterman, Anthony Comes, Bobby Donovan, Jim Gallucci, Tom Greaves, Meaghan Harrison, Matt Hollis, Ron Longsdorf, Christine Sciulli, Patricia Segnan, Mike Shaffer, Foon Sham, and Al Zaruba.

Annmarie Garden Sculpture Park & Arts Center is conveniently located just off Route 2-4 at 13480 Dowell Road in Solomons, MD.
