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.

Brighton Primary Art Show 2008

Friday 18th, Saturday 19th & Sunday 20th July

This is by way of introducing you and your members to our art show which is held later in July this year. To re-cap…..We are looking to ‘invite’ some sculptors to exhibit at our show to balance the eclectic mix of art styles that we try to achieve. In my mind I was thinking say 6 sculptor artists with say up to 5 pieces each, total up to 30 pieces1. The prices could range from $100 up to say $2000 for this buyers range, taking into account that as a fund raiser event, we would take 25% of the sale price.

The artwork delivery day is on the Friday morning before the show & artworks to be taken away after 5pm on the Sunday afternoon of that weekend… so its all very neat & compact time wise. There are some beautiful bay windows at the venue ‘Billilla’ with magnificent natural light that we could allocate space to exhibit some of these works.

Our website is www.brightonprimaryartshow.com.au.

For some more general information:

Most of the works are hanging artworks but we desire to mix this with sculptures too. We have a substantial base of artists already and as you read more from our website you will see that we draw from the school parents, their friends/relatives etc. and the local community along with invited artists to add balance to the quality of works we exhibit. It is intended to be a show displaying various standards and types of artworks with a focus on bringing our school and the community together for a fun weekend.

It’s the second year running and from the more renowned artists point of view, it is holding a high standard of reputation particularly with the chosen venue and the professional display & lighting systems that we use. We also group our artists into their own separate sections, not jumbled in amongst other artists styles etc., that in itself is a bit unique.

The website gives a great deal of information about the show for any interested artists. Once artists have registered their interest, with myself as curator, and usually by sending some images by email … we then forward what we call an Artist Pack which gives the entry form and all other information needed.

More importantly, entries for this show close soon on 13th June 2008 though in your advertisement we would be happy to extend this closing date to your members by one week till 20th June2 or until all places are filled.

Bye for now…

Curator, Brighton Primary Art Show 2008

1A bit ambitious with the number of works per sculptor – we shall see how many are able to oblige. Editor's note.

2This date has also passed – however it may be worth contacting the curator if you live or work in the area and are really keen – Editor's note
