New England Sculptors Association (NESA) is a 501(c)(3), non profit organization for established sculptors as well as aspiring and talented students. Our members are selected by jury, and work in a variety of media.

The public has consistently greeted our exhibits with enthusiasm and this success is a testimony to the vision of its founders.

In addition to creating, showing, and selling sculpture, members are available to consult on all questions regarding sculpture, its acquisition and care, writing commission proposals, restoration, foundry services and public sculpture design.
