Sculpture 2013, co-chaired by volunteers Jean Pettigrew and Sofia Dow, is expected to be a biennial event.

Executive director Beth Child said, “We’re very pleased with the number of entries we received in our first year of this show. We will be presenting not only the best of our local sculptors, but also we’re excited to present new sculptors to our community and patrons.”
