The Pacific Northwest Sculptors will be participating in a group show at the A.N. Bush Gallery of the Bush Barn Art Center. The exhibit will feature recent works by PNWS mem­bers with sculp­ture demon­stra­tions in Bush’s Pas­ture Park offered dur­ing the Salem Art Fair & Fes­ti­val, July 20–22. This exhibit will feature work by 24 PNWS members and will be on display through August 25, 2012.

The Pacific Northwest Sculptors, of whom Rip is a Board member,  is a volunteer driven 501(c)(3) organization comprised of sculptors and persons in associated fields who live and work in the Northwest. Its purpose is to foster the art of sculpture by increasing public awareness of the issues and techniques that surround sculpture and to facilitate communication between member sculptors. PNWS sponsors seminars, workshops, lectures and art events that are open to the public. Meetings are held monthly and may be educational, featuring a demonstration, lecture or studio tour or general which give members the opportunity to freely interact. Member benefits also include exhibition opportunities, exposure on the PNWS online Gallery, but most importantly the opportunity to interact with other sculptors. For more information check out:
