Sculptors Invitational

Sculptors Invitational and Art Show

 About the Invitational

SDI hosts an annual show and sale called The Sculptors Invitational. To date we have presented some 250 sculptors and exhibited over 750 sculptures from around Texas, the nation and other countries, all without a required entrance fee through 2010. We have also given over 6000 school children a free 45 minute tour of the exhibit. There are only a few large scale shows of 100 or more nationwide and even fewer are on an annual basis. We are the only show our size and variety on a 6 acre residential setting and inside the city limits. Big sculpture is rare to create and even more rare to be offered as an exhibt of over 100 sculptures per show.

This Invitational is unique for other reasons as well. The show venue indeed the garden itself becomes recreated as an environmental design of interactive multiple-sculptures. You are surrounded by giants of concept and imagination. Man made three dimension magically interacts with natures 'living dimensions'. You can walk into and about it with awe, touch it and walk around it.

At the start when the grounds are empty it is like the artists' "blank canvass", then the repsective sculptures, their colors, sizes and textures become a palette of media to be composed, mixed, and blended either in an open field or by a group of trees or by the house or pool. This "Sculpture Show Design" exhibit is in itself a dynamic conception and presentation - and is different each year, yea, each season or change of the skies mighty light. It takes a full time of "'creative' hands on" labor both before the show as well as during the show.

The Sculptors Invitational ... is one of a kind.  It focuses on large outdoor professional sculptures. By SDI's experience it is large if one person can not pick it up, so about 400lbs; its outdoors if the weather will not unintentionally alter its materials or color value or require it to be maintained; its professional if it blends the basic elements of art design with high hand skill. Finally it is ably coveted when it culminates with a purchase by an ultimate patron. The purchase both finalizes and begins the sculptors process all over again.

Our audience aims are for the visually and educationally hungry of arts and culture. Therein is contained the financially able collectors and corporate groups who by acquisition of art show and share with the community an appreciation of culture through art. Importantly therein are also the new appetites of school age children discovering 'flavors' of culture for the first time. A final aim is the satisfaction of the eye of the mature patrons of art, now having the time to enjoy and appreciate by the simple gift of sight.

You may see or purchase at anytime during the year. Give us a call or come to our special April show. All sculptures at the show can be photographed for pleasure. See also our website where Photos of all our shows are available.
