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.

Next Monthly Meeting - 11th March 2020

Art is a wonderful means of communication and throughout history it has recorded and reflected our culture, state of human society and the natural world.
Now as we experience some of the most devastating effects of climate change, art can communicate the events, and our reactions to them, how we can help make a difference and our hopes for the future. While we want to see our politicians acting, we as individuals can play our part. Sometimes art has been the catalyst for change, both visual and performing Arts

I am sure many of you will want to attend our meeting in March when we are privileged to have Guy Abrahams as our guest speaker.

TO ALL MEMBERS – URGENT!

MIFGS Update

Those of you who have entered for the MIFGS exhibition know that preparations are well in hand.

VENUES FOR THE ANNUAL AND AWARDS EXHIBITION

Your Exhibition Coordinators have already been out and about searching for a venue for our Annual Exhibition without success due to the fact that many city venues are undergoing renovations and most of the local galleries are booked at least a year in advance. We would appreciate if you have any suggestions. As we have tried many places it would be great if you would refer ideas to us as we would not wish to double up with enquiries.
