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.

Sunday in the Hills – the May Meeting

It is always a privilege to visit a sculptor's studio – and when the sculptor turns on the hospitality in a beautiful place you know you've met real generosity. So it was with the May meeting to the home and studio of Jan and John Wooller.

Here is Gillian's report on the day:

None of us could complain about the much needed rain as we drove to the home of Jan and John nestled in the dripping bushland at Ferny Creek. But we did complain about the cold until we were greeted by a roaring log fire and warm

hospitality. Examples of John’s sculptures in wood and steel adorned the house, and were viewed with great respect. Members and partners enjoyed a beautiful relaxing lunch and chat as well as a walk down the garden to John’s studio where he demonstrated how he produces his beautiful work.

Thanks to all the members who came and for their contributions to lunch and special thanks to Jan and John for treating us so royally.
