SCULPTORS SOCIETY OF CANADA

Late in the summer of 1928, Ontario sculptors Frances Loring and Emanuel Hahn met with Henri Hébert at his Montreal studio to discuss forming a national association of sculptors. Their meeting led to the immediate creation of the Sculptors Society of Canada (SSC), followed several weeks later by three simultaneous exhibitions. Among those to join the SSC were well-known Quebec artists such as Alfred Laliberté and Marc-Aurèle Suzor-Côté. Despite the number of active regional societies that have since been established, the SSC continues to pursue its mission of promoting Canadian sculpture and supporting artists in the field.
