We cooperate as an association to advance the practice of sculpture and the reputation and appreciation of sculpture and sculptors in the community. This is regardless of whether or not we make a living from sculpture and regardless of our preferred style or medium. To this end we support artists’ moral rights, we advocate a professional attitude to the production and presentation of work and encourage the artistic and intellectual stimulation of interaction amongst artists of all persuasions.

Happy New Year Everyone!

The year has already started with our busy Herring Island committee organising what will be a great exhibition. Entry forms are already available for the Melbourne International Flower and Garden Show and our Annual Exhibition Coordinator is already confirming plans for the venue of our exhibition. Several monthly meetings have been organised and interesting speakers and studio visits organised. And we are only a few days into 2017. Thanks to all who have contributed.

Deadlines for Entries Coming Up

The Melbourne Prize for Urban Sculpture highlights the importance of the aesthetic quality and liveability of the urban environment and its relationship with sculpture, in all its forms.

I want to let you know we will be launching a Registration of Interest (ROI) for the Melbourne Prize for Urban Sculpture 2017 & Awards on our website www.melbourneprize.org on December 12th. People will be able to email us and in doing so will receive the entry form when it is released early next year.

The 2017 program will be similar to 2014 but we have some exciting additions.

For further information and to register for entry information go to http://melbourneprizetrust.org/ and http://www.melbourneprize.org/
