'Soraya' accepted to the Society of Portrait Sculptors annual exhibition, FACE 2020.
Cavan artist Marie Smith's sculpture Soraya below:
This Open Exhibition is the only forum for contemporary portrait sculpture in the UK and consists of about 70 sculptures of which approximately one third is chosen from open submission from non members. It is an international exhibition and open to entries worldwide. It is held in a London gallery usually in May.
Due to increasing difficulties we are all facing due to the Coronavirus outbreak the Society will replace the gallery exhibition in May this year with a virtual online exhibition. Link to be updated when it becomes available.
Marie Smith: "Soraya is a French life model whom I worked with at The Atelier Legendre in Paris. We worked together several times but on this occassion, I spent approximately 20 hours with the model in the studio and then further time finishing the piece at my place on Rue Berthe in Montmartre. The piece is available in bronze and Jesmonite"
