Duncan MacDiarmid and Ashley Hickey are both sculptors and members of Society of Sculptors (SOS). They have both been members of the board, and Ashley Hickey is currently the President. Established in 1935 as a part of the Pittsburgh Center for the Arts, SOS is one of the oldest groups that promotes the visibility of sculptors locally and nationally. Both Duncan and Ashley's works are completely different, showing the diversity within the field. They talk about their work and their process, as well as the growth and changes in the Pittsburgh art scene, the economy and art, the flexibility of sculpture, and the price of art over time.
If you would like to be a part of SOS's 80th Anniversary Show in November, make sure to submit your work by July 14 and follow this link to find out more. The show will take place November 13–January 17 at the Pittsburgh Center for the Arts.
