Fleeting, Fled: Washington Sculptors Group | March 27 - May 2, 2021
Juried by Laura Roulet
Fleeting, Fled comes to fruition after a year of waiting. Last spring, at the beginning of the pandemic shutdown, and a year of anxiety, dread, and tremendous loss began, I wrote:
As with so much of our activity, this exhibition of the Washington Sculptors Group has been postponed. In a way, it is fitting that the theme “Fleeting, Fled” is open to multiple interpretations of the temporal. Time moves more slowly while under the stress and anxiety of quarantine. The future is uncertain, yet the seasons progress as always. While the cycle of life, death and rebirth is the underlying theme of many artworks included in the exhibition, the ephemeral springtime beauty of Glen Echo Park and the Washington region is very much in evidence. Our environment is both celebrated and investigated. Some artists examine the fleeting opportunity of remediating climate change, noting that the window of effective environmental response may have already fled. Next spring, Glen Echo’s indoor and outdoor settings will allow for a wide variety of media, including sound and temporary outdoor sculptures. Meanwhile, enjoy this selection online, and visit the park in March 2021 for the real thing. - Laura Roulet, Exhibition Juror
Now that March 2021 has arrived, we are in fact eagerly re-opening the real thing in a cautious, socially-distanced manner. We are all looking forward to seeing sculpture and each other in real life. I am feeling the optimism that spring always brings in the air, as well as the optimism brought by widespread vaccines and declining COVID-19 cases. This exhibition now combines an examination of the temporal with gratitude for the healing power of art.

The WASHINGTON SCULPTORS GROUP (WSG) is a non-profit organization founded in 1984 to promote an awareness and understanding of sculpture. To achieve this goal, WSG fosters the exchange of ideas between sculptors, collectors, art representatives, and the public by organizing exhibitions and events that are free and open to the public.
WSG plans, manages, and promotes 3-4 juried and curated exhibitions each year in galleries, museums and alternative spaces throughout the greater Washington, DC area, in cooperation with other local arts organizations. These high-quality exhibitions give our members opportunities to show their work and raise their visibility within the greater Washington DC region.
