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.

William Echoltz will come to Boroondarra Culture centre to tell us about his work. The talk will commence at 7.30 and will be accompanied by a power point presentation.
William Eicholtz is a contemporary sculptor, taking figurative art from its traditional lineage then performing and placing it firmly in current artistic dialogue. Evoking classic themes, his sensual sculptures rejoice in the metaphor and the physical, with a particular focus on the male nude.
Eicholtz acknowledges, in both theme and technique, the figure’s place in the classical history of art, then appropriates and translates it into a language infused with a humour and theatricality that embraces modern art.
Exploring and working with new materials in innovative ways, Eicholtz’s many public and private commissions vary from small –scale pieces suited to indoor display, to large scale weather hardy works.
These exciting and beautiful sculptures take their place in art practice today. Studying sculpture throughout his life, William has acquired a first class honours degree in fine art and he has been teaching for many years at university level.
He exhibits his work throughout Australia and is featured in international collections. William primarily works from his Melbourne studio and is fortunate to have dual USA/ Australian Citizenship.
Set up annual exhibition.
