Face2012 - The Society of Portrait Sculptors
The Gallery in Cork Street & Gallery 27
5/14/2012 to 5/19/2012
The Society of Portrait Sculptors annual open exhibition is the UKs only forum for contemporary portrait sculpture. Now in its 49th year, the exhibition extends a warm welcome to practising sculptors, students and art lovers, whether familiar with or new to the form.
An ideal hunting ground for designers or individuals seeking inspiration for commissions, the exhibition showcases some 66 figurative sculptures, around one half of which are chosen from open submissions by non-members.
Emerging talent will feature alongside the widely acclaimed work of members and the Masterwork for 2012: a bronze portrait bust (1924) of Joseph Conrad by Sir Jacob Epstein; and there will be short lecture on this piece in the Gallery at 1230 on Wednesday 16th May given by Dr Jonathan Black.
