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.

Joan at the dedication
of the Gallery at BAG 
Joan Macrae born Feb 25th 1918, died Sept 18th 2017

Joan’s contribution to art, sculpture and ceramics in Beaumaris was considerable. A gentle, warm, friendly and welcoming person she was loved by all. Her drive, enthusiasm, intelligence, creativity and practical abilities were endless. Through her work the Beaumaris Art Group began.

Help Needed

We have been contacted through the website by the owner of a broken water feature. The owner has been informed by the nursery that sold it to him that the original sculptor has died. So we have been approached to find someone to help. The original bowl was apparently made from Hebel but a ceramic replacement may well be the most appropriate.
