The day will also feature Walking Tours at 4:00pm, led by New Hope-Solebury residents Joanne Reska and June Nezamis. Attendees will have the chance to explore a selection of sculptures while gaining insights into New Hope's vibrant community art scene and are also welcome to the Members Only Preview from 5:00pm to 6:00pm.

Furthermore, the festivities will mark the opening of the highly anticipated Sculpture 2024 Juried Exhibition by George R. Anthonisen. The Exhibit will feature over 90 artworks from 58 talented artists. The exhibition will run from April 27 to June 7, 2024, with an Opening Reception from 6:00pm to 8:00pm, preceded by a Member Preview from 5:00pm to 6:00pm.  This exhibition has been generously sponsored by Joe Franlin, Andy Pedinoff and Michael Sheehy.

George R. Anthonisen's artistic career has spanned 65 years as a figurative sculptor. Well versed in history and current events, Anthonisen (b. 1936) creates visual dialogues, primarily in bronze, that investigate the human condition and people’s capacity to destroy, to create, to question, and to make noble choices. He is known for his thoughtful and sometimes haunting content and for championing the elegance and strength of the female form.
