SCAA Members show Sculpture Award 2020

In what has been a particularly difficult year, this week brought a positive development. This past month, I submitted my found object assemblage sculpture “Magistrate” to the South County Art Association’s annual Members show. This exhibition is one in which the work is eligible for prizes in various media, as awarded by an outside juror. This year, the juror for the show is Nancy Gaucher Thomas, who is well known as a highly esteemed artist and arts organizer.

Visiting the gallery, I was very honored to see that I had been awarded the Jim Visconti Award for best sculpture for my work. This award is particularly significant to me, as Jim was a friend and mentor to me back when I was a young high school art student.

There is a wonderful video available in which Ms. Gaucher Thomas talks about the show and the awards that she presented. You can see it here:

I would like to extend my deepest thanks to Ms. Gaucher Thomas, and to the hardworking staff and volunteers at the SCAA, who have kept going even under unusually challenging circumstances.
