  • CALL TO ARTISTS- SCULPTFEST2015

    WEST RUTLAND, VT- The Carving Studio and Sculpture Center invites sculptors to submit proposals for SculptFest2015, September 12-October 25. The theme for this year’s outdoor installation event is “Memory Work,” guest curated by dj Hellerman. Located in West Rutland, Vermont amid inactive quarries and former manufacturing facilities of the Vermont Marble Company, the Carving Studio and Sculpture Center (CSSC) is located on a site where the labor of Italian, Swedish, Polish, German, Hungarian and other immigrants has made a significant impact on the ways we commemorate, remember, and memorialize. Keeping in mind the labor, traditions, and generations of people responsible for the success of the Vermont Marble Company as well as the history of the CSSC, Memory Work is an exhibition inviting artists to respond and rethink dominant forms of monument making. Projects focused on traditional approaches to sculpture are always encouraged but this is an open invitation for artists to explore new forms of remembering as well. Proposals should include a project description on one or two pages, sketches or other visual representations, resume, optional statement and up to ten digital images portraying previous site-specific work. Applications are due June 22, 2015. Materials will be returned if accompanied by a self-addressed envelope with sufficient postage. Address submissions to “SculptFest2015,” The Carving Studio and Sculpture Center, P.O. Box 495, West Rutland, VT 05777.
