Work from nearly two dozen artists will be on display in the juried show. The sculptors hail from Tennessee, Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Virginia and represent a wide range of styles and mediums.

An award-winning artist himself, Adcock received a BFA studio art degree from Appalachian State University in 2002, and received an MFA in sculpture from East Carolina University in 2007. He is a “maker” at heart, and thoroughly enjoys the process of bringing varied materials together to create meaningful and exciting relationships.
