Sculpture At The River Market (SATRM) will present its 8th annual Show & Sale on April 24-26, 2015 in the Pavilions at the River Market – located at 400 President Clinton Avenue in Little Rock, Arkansas.
The weekend begins with the Preview Party, an advanced ticketed event held on Friday night, April 24. Tickets available here. Hundreds of sculptures, from internationally recognized artists juried into the 2015 Show & Sale, will be displayed and sold in a party setting in the River Market Pavilions. This exquisite evening, featuring food, libations, live entertainment by Pop/Soul artist Heather Batchelor and more, allows party guests the first opportunity to meet and visit with the artists while viewing and purchasing works. Additionally all patrons at the Preview Party will vote for their favorite proposal from the semi-finalists works for the up to $60,000 Public Art Commission Competition (funded by SATRM).
As the Preview Party ends, Bronze & Brewskis begins! This is the do-not-miss event for young professionals (and the young at heart) as the look and feel, along with the food and libations change up. Live entertainment by John Willis and Late Romantics. A perfect way to end an ART-ful evening. If you haven’t purchased your tickets in advance (click here) you can still get them at the door!
On Saturday and Sunday (April 25-26) admission to Sculpture At The River Market Show & Sale is free. Thousands of visitors will populate the Pavilions to see and purchase works of all media, style, subject matter, and size. The sculptures will be on display throughout the weekend in the River Market Pavilions and in the adjacent area of Riverfront Park. This is a great opportunity to visit with the artists, learn about their inspiration for their sculptures, and more.
At the end of the weekend, the winner of the 2015 Public Art Commission Competition will be announced, and the winning sculpture will be installed prior to the 2016 Show & Sale.
On Saturday and Sunday, Segway of Arkansas and Bobby’s Bike Hike will have special tours, and there will be a Docent-lead tour of the Sculpture Garden. On Sunday, the Food Trucks will be on site – Hot Rod Wieners, Loblolly Creamery and Clean Eatery.
