NESA (New England Sculptors Association) presents:
The Nature Show 

August 28 - November 4, 2016 

New England’s largest sculptors organization brings sculpture campus-wide in “The Nature Show” beginning August 28th. Sculptors from around the region, working in many media, use nature as a springboard and inspiration. Creating a dialog with Pine Manor’s own campus sculpture collection, our guest sculptors will site work both indoors and outdoors around the campus. One of the guest sculptors will lead a special participatory sculpture workshop for all students in September, so stay tuned!

Nature Show events:

  • Opening Reception Sept. 24th, 2-4pm
  • Artist’s talk with stone carver William Bloomfield, September 22nd at 10:30 in the gallery.
  • October 5th (afternoon): Tree Thistle sculptor Catherine Evans hosts a DIY project especially for Pine Manor.

The Hess Gallery at Pine Manor College is pleased to present The Nature Show! Starring members of NESA, the New England Sculptors Association. 25 sculptors from across New England bring their work—and their very personal connections to the natural world—to the Pine Manor College campus this fall. The venerable, wooded campus, with specimen trees and Roxbury puddingstone outcroppings, is an ideal venue for a widely diverse group work ranging from the abstract, to the realistic, to the whimsical. Additional work is displayed inside at The Hess Gallery itself. Exhibiting artist Catherine Evans will conduct a participatory, group sculpture project, so watch for more information!
