The 2009 Cary Visual Art Outdoor Sculpture Exhibition was honored to have distinguished juror, Linda Dougherty, select ten sculptures for exhibition from August 22, 2009 through June 25, 2010 at the Cary Town Hall Campus in Cary, North Carolina.
“The works selected for this year's CVA Outdoor Sculpture Exhibition exemplify the diverse range of media and subject matter found in contemporary sculpture today,” said juror Linda Dougherty. “Each of the ten sculptures on view has its own unique characteristics and individual power, but the exhibition also provides an opportunity to see common threads among these works.
