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.

From the President

Hi All,

With NBN roll out , bumping out the exhibition and catching our breath this newsletter is likely to be a little late. But better late than never. Thanks again to our editor Jenny for getting all the news to us.

Well yes another successful Annual Exhibition has finished. Was it successful? Well we had some very happy award winners, very happy exhibitors who sold works and in my time spent at Bourke Place, I saw and listened to some very happy sculptors meeting other sculptors learning more about their techniques, materials and making new friends. From where I sit that is a successful exhibition.
