Pacific Rim Sculptors Group : "Sculpture Now" Juried Show

21 Sculptors Juried by Brigitte Micmacker

January 30 - March 31, 2019

Sculpturesite owner and curator Brigitte Micmacker was invited to jury a show of contemporary sculpture for the Pacific Rim Sculptors Group titled "Sculpture Now" for exhibition at the Peninsula Museum of Art in Burlingame, CA from November 18th, 2018 through January 27, 2019.

Sculptors were asked to present works focusing on their response to serious social or environmental issues challenging our country and planet and resulting in humanitarian crises: industrial pollutants and climate change damage our atmosphere and increase the risks of fires, crop failures, extreme weather, poisoned land and waterways while discarded plastic chokes our oceans and kills already over-fished marine life. Scarce resources lead to strife. Borders close to desperate asylum-seeking refugees and children are torn from their parents.  In these times of unprecedented and rapid change, artists' voices need to be heard more than ever.

"On first review", says Micmacker, "many works exploded with anger and despair, not surprisingly, since our region is known for its liberal left leaning and the last two years have not been kind to liberals (...) It was important to show these intense feelings, but also to end up with an aesthetically pleasing experience. I felt that we needed humor, irony, subtlety and hope."
