New York, New York – The National Sculpture Society (NSS) is pleased to present the Fellows Online Invitational. This on-line exhibition features the works of 41 NSS Fellows.
The Fellows Online Invitational is National Sculpture Society’s first on-line exhibition of 2014. The show is a look at the work of this country’s top figurative sculptors. The exhibition includes public monuments to palm-sized sculptures and explores themes of the everyday to the extraordinary in a unique manner. Highlights of the show include a Venetian gondola; a lush, oversized gingko leaf; a blossoming bow; and a memorial to Adelor, Chicago’s Lincoln Park Zoo lion. The mediums run the gamut from traditional bronze, to carved wood and marble, to acrylic and terracotta. The styles and subject matter reflect the diversity of NSS members.
Sculptors featured in the exhibition include: George R. Anthonisen, Anthony Antonios, Bela Bacsi, Gerald Balciar, Richard Blake, Fred X Brownstein, Tim Cherry, Eugene Daub, Floyd DeWitt, Martin Eichinger, Zenos Frudakis, Glenna Goodacre, Andre Harvey, Norman Holen, Lee Hutt, Barry Woods Johnston, Carter Jones, Amy Kann, Simon Kogan, Jeffrey H.

National Sculpture Society was founded in New York City in 1893 by a group of America’s most prominent sculptors. Its members have created much of this country’s public sculpture, coins, and medals since the late 1800s. It is the oldest organization of professional sculptors in the United States.
