Last week the Northeast Florida Sculptors opened a new sculpture show called “In Situ”. The name is appropriate since it is set at the Ethan Allen showrooms at the St. John’s Town Center. The point of the show is to let people see how good sculpture can look in a home environment.

This is the first time I have entered a Northeast Florida Sculptor’s show and was very pleased that one of my pieces was selected. They close “Question of Balance II”, which was my favorite of the three I entered. There are a lot of really amazing sculptors in this group.

Dave Engdahl and David Ponsler did a great job curating and lighting the show. We had sculpture in every room of the showroom, some on pedestals and some integrated with the furniture.

My piece ended up in the front window.

As we walked around we saw a lot of wonderful pieces. Diana Shepard had a wonderful trio of exuberant women.

My friend, Pablo Rivera had a great sculpture of a hand. I couldn’t tell if it indicated the story that gestures make while taking or prep for one of my tai chi classes. I think it was the former. The title “Manos Verde” didn’t give me any additional clues.

Here are some of my other favorites that I managed to get decent pictures of. I just didn’t manage to get good shots of the great work of several other friends.
