Things You Should Know: Sculptors may enter three works of indoor or outdoor sculpture. No commission is taken in the event of sales. Please invite gallery curators, friends, family and potential buyers.

The event is held outdoors, rain or shine. Note: There is limited sheltered space; sculptors may bring canopy tent. Photographic portfolios are encouraged. Pedestals, if needed, as well as any installation tools/equipment and leveling aids are the sculptor’s responsibility.

All sculpture must remain on display in the park until 4:00 pm Saturday. Security guards patrol the park periodically from 7 pm Friday until 7 am Saturday. However, work installed in the park overnight is at the sculptor’s risk.

This event is a partnership between the Caldwell Arts Council, Tri-State Sculptors Association, Mountain Sculptors, the City of Lenoir, and the Lenoir Tourism Development Association.  If you are not currently on our email list to receive updates for Sculpture Celebration, call us at 828-754-2486 or email us at 

Unloading / Loading Service: A crane will be available for unloading large sculptures on Friday and
loading on Saturday afternoon. This mechanical assistance will be available at no cost to the sculptors. The crane can lift 4,100 pounds at a 15’ reach, or 1,600 pounds at a 33’ reach. All large pieces using the crane must be installed on Friday from 10 am — 7 pm. Small trucks only (no large equipment) will be allowed in the park on Saturday morning. Check the appropriate space on the registration form and a time will be scheduled with the crane operator.

Juror: Randy Shull is an artist who works fluidly between a variety of mediums, including furniture design, spatial design, painting, and landscape design. He is highly acclaimed for his rich and sensual use of color and space. Awarded a North Carolina Arts Council Fellowship in 1994, an NEA Southern Arts Federation grant in 1995, and a master residency at Oregon School of Arts & Crafts in Portland, Randy has also had four solo shows in New York in the past decade. His work is included in a number of important museum collections including The Brooklyn Museum; The High Museum in Atlanta; The Renwick Museum of American Art in Washington, D.C.; The Mint Museum of Craft & Design in Charlotte; Racine Museum of Art; The Gregg Museum of Art & Design, and Museum of Art and Design in New York. Randy stays involved in the local community by serving on the board of the Asheville Art Museum. Randy maintains studios in Asheville, NC and Merida, Mexico.

In 2008 and 2009 Randy’s work was the subject of a twenty-year retrospective that opened on January 24th at the Gregg Museum of Art & Design at NC State, and traveled to the San Francisco Museum of Craft & Design as well as The Bellview Art Museum and The Ogden Museum of Southern Art. Reviews of the exhibition can be found in the Raleigh News and Observer and the San Francisco Chronicle.
