The Tri-State Sculptors Educational Association was formed in 1978 by a group of sculptors from Virginia, North Carolina, and South Carolina to promote public awareness and appreciation of sculpture in the region and to exchange ideas and information among its members. The organization holds annual fall conferences with concurrent exhibitions. Presentations cover a wide range of topics of interest to sculptors and those interested in sculpture, casting techniques, public art, studio hazards, gallery relations, etc.
Each spring there is a more informal conference when members can get together to share ideas and socialize. Other events and exhibitions are organized each year as the need or opportunity arises Members also stay connected and informed through a quarterly newsletter and a monthly digital newsletter.
Membership is open to anyone interested in sculpture, regardless of style, medium, education, or location. Annual membership dues are due on January 1 of each year.
Please take a moment to sign up for our monthly digital newsletter. The signup form is on the top right hand side of every page.This is in addition to our hard copy newsletter. This digital newsletter is available to TSS members as well as any other interested artists and groups.
