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.

Some of the works entered for the 2017 exhibition

The sculpture is displayed – and judged - in three sections (a) carved works (b) formed or cast works (c) fabricated works and installations. Each year we show over 100 works suitable for garden/courtyard areas, large properties, corporate spaces and home decoration (The average over the past few years is about 120 works.) There are thousands and thousands of People’s Choice Award votes lodged by viewers of the exhibition. This is one of Australia’s longest-running (over 20 years) and largest outdoor sculpture exhibitions (by number of sculptures on display).


The opening function and presentation event will be held on Wednesday, 29th March at East Imperial Restaurant, Carlton. For invitations to this event please contact the curator whose details can be found below.
