Sculpture is the discipline of fashioning a three-dimensional art piece in bronze, stone, wood, metal, plaster or other material. Our open call theme this year is Beyond the static. As sculpture known as "plastic art", for the shaping process or "plasticity" it involves but nor is it purely solid and static. It may reference empty space in an important way and can also be kinetic and capable of movement.  



The theme can relate loosely or strictly, as long as the theme is justified. We are looking for creative, innovative and inspiring artworks that connect to landscapes in many styles and genres:

Figurative      Abstract      Animals       Objects      Relief      Assemblage      Modern      Traditional
