SculptureNow, is a well established
name and destination point for sculpture exhibitions. Entering its
thirteenth year of presenting sculpture shows throughout the county,
it is celebrating the event paying homage Hancock Shaker culture
which is entering its own 50th anniversary. This is a rare chance
to view and own the artifacts of significant part of ancient Berkshire.
SculptureNow is exhibition supervised by panel of adjudicators of
repute. The venue selected being outdoor sculpture on Main Street,
Lee, MA. June 12–October 31, 2010.
The Hancock Shaker culture is becoming extinct today, and in order
to keep its legacy alive, many of the noted sculptors were invited
by SculptureNow to the Hancock Shaker Village to study their architecture,
philosophy and objects. Their interpretations are mirrored in their
own creations, which are on exhibitions on the lawns along Main
Street in Lee. View the modern view of “Separate but Equal”
living, Circle Dancers, Mitten Pattern, “Borrowed Light”,
Shaker Boxes, Chairs and Tools.
What is more interesting is that at the SculptureNow in Lee 2010
exhibition many of the sculptors will also be exhibiting smaller,
indoor sculptures in the exhibition Simple Gifts: Contemporary Artists
Explore the Shaker Legacy at Hancock Shaker Village. It is rare
chance to carry home a souvenir of the vibrant era gone by. So be
