The City of Kettering and Rosewood Gallery are pleased to announce the opening of HWD: Regional Juried Sculpture Competition. This year, 48 sculpture artists from Ohio, Indiana, Michigan, West Virginia, Pennsylvania, and Kentucky submitted 130 pieces, from which the juror chose 30 artworks, representing 27 artists.
The exhibit runs from August 25 through September 26, with an opening reception on Sunday, August 24 from 2-4 pm. United Art and Education Awards will be presented at 3 pm that afternoon.
Both the reception and exhibition are free and open to the public.
HWD juror Carrie Longley describes how the exquisite nature in which the artists captured dimensions and surface made the jurying process a difficult one:
“I am consistently impressed by the innovation, variety, and incredible skill sets of the HWD artists. The exceptional entries this year made the jurying process an inspiring challenge. […] As a viewer, I’m drawn to works which feature unique combinations of the familiar and imagined. With much of the work, the use of familiar materials or repurposed objects such as wood, steel, ceramics, even shag carpet initially captured my attention, while the imagined aspects encouraged me to further investigate, admire, and wonder.”
