ABOUT THE EXHIBITION
This year we are initiating our first juried online exhibition + art book featuring ‘contemporary sculpture’. For the purposes of this project, the term, ‘contemporary sculpture’ refers to sculpture—produced today. Within this expanded context, sculpture is understood as carving and modeling from traditional materials like stone, metal, wood, and clay, but it is not confined to these materials or processes. Submissions may include but not be limited to a combination of Cubist, Constructivist, Dadaist, Futurist, Pop-Art, Minimalist, Conceptual art influences and/or assemblage or installation.
Robert Birch is the President of the Birch Contemporary art gallery, a seminal venue that features emerging to established Canadian and international artists, with regular monthly exhibitions. The Birch Contemporary principal holds a BA, in Art and Art History Specialist Degree from University of Toronto at Mississauga – Erindale College and a Visual Arts Diploma from Sheridan College. His seminal art gallery opened its doors to the public more than three decades ago.
