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,
I hope as an Association we keep our members interested and informed. We hope you all feel that you can contribute and can communicate with other sculptors through the newsletters meetings and of course our great exhibitions.

As usual the visit to a foundry was a great success. Though small in numbers the group was enthusiastic and excited to see a bronze pour. On arrival Ewen went through the process explaining different materials and methods of mould making.
