NEW IDEAS IN MEDALLIC SCULPTURE
An Annual Exhibition
NEW IDEAS IN MEDALLIC SCULPTURE began as a Medialia...Rack and Hamper Gallery event in 1998, and has continued for eleven years. After several years of teaching a class in stone carving at The University of the Arts, Philadelphia, Mashiko Nakashima created this annual traveling exhibition series to encourage students to become professionally involved with art. In its current stage, the collaborative exhibition, NEW IDEAS IN MEDALLIC SCULPTURE, is supported by a combination of the three participating universities, individual patrons, and the nonprofit organization, New Approach, Inc. NEW IDEAS is one of several New Approach projects that encourages young generations to express ideas in medallic sculpture. Exhibitions comprised of young medallic sculptors have also been an essential part of Medialia Gallery's philosophy from its beginning.

The genesis of the NEW IDEAS exhibition project was the not-for-profit organization, New Approach, Inc. The purpose of New Approach, Inc. is to promote emerging artists and curators, as well as to encourage public awareness of unconventional medallic art.

Mashiko Nakashima is the founder and director of Medialia ... Rack and Hamper Gallery, and New Approach, Inc. In addition to her life as a professional artist and curator, she is a Master Lecturer at The University of the Arts, Philadelphia, where she teaches stone carving and medallic sculpture courses.
