3-D Printing Sculpture Competition Calls for Entries

A Maine art gallery has released a call for submissions to its first show later this year focusing exclusively on 3-D printed sculptures.

The Landing Gallery of Rockland, Maine, is asking artists working in the 3-D printing medium to submit their entries for the Bits to Its: 3-D Printed Sculpture exhibition to be held this spring. Entries must be at least 75 percent 3-D printed, but may involve other processes. MainFabLab will host a week of educational sessions devoted to teaching 3-D printing techniques and technology to the public.

Entries for the May 3 show must be received by March 15 so they may be evaluated by the following three show judges:

Ping Fu founded 3-D software company Geomagic in 1997 and recently sold the company to 3D Systems Corp., where she is the new chief strategy officer.

Joshua Harker is an artist who works with 3-D printers to create a wide variety of complex geometry sculptures and other designs.

Asher Nahmias is an Israeli artist also known as “Dizingof,” who uses 3-D printing to create designs he calls “math art.”

Artists interested in the show and who lack access to a 3-D printer are invited to Potomac Photonics, in Lanham, Md., which has agreed to print works with the artist paying for the cost of materials. Interested artists may request a submission form by emailing

  1. Thanks Brian for a great story.
    We’re helping the Landing Gallerywith the technical details.
    We’ll also be coordinating workshops during the show about 3D Printing.
    WIll keep you posted.

  2. Hello:

    I’m looking for the spot in Thomas to post my commercial artwork services, i.e., where I engage with engineered ceramics, paper, metal digital products, etc. Any guru would love to have a tip without hours/days of searching.
