An innovative 3D art exhibition of sculptors opens to the public next week.

The exhibition, at LifeWorks Creative Arts Centre behind Loughton Methodist Church, opens on Tuesday February 19 and runs for two days, from 10.30 to 3.30pm.

The works of Brian Mercer and Sir Jacob Epstein will be featured, along with items from members of the LMC Sculpture Club including Sue O’Hea, Barbara Holden, Paul Davies, Keith Aldred, Stephanie Jerome and John Hart.

Sir Jacob was an American-British sculptor who helped pioneer modern sculpture.

He moved to Europe in 1902 and became a British subject in 1911, producing often controversial works which challenged ideas on what was appropriate subject matter for public artworks.

He lived in Loughton’s Baldwins Hill from 1933-1950.

Brian Mercer, who works in clay and lives in Woodford Green, will be attending the Tuesday opening.

He said: “I am delighted to invite people to see our first exhibition.

"The group is enthusiastic, committed and keen to learn. We know you will be interested in what’s on display.”

Entrance is free and all are welcome.
