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.

The Annual Exhibition

Bon Voyage for Gillian Govan and her husband Peter who are off on their annual jaunt overseas. Before leaving Gillian has been very busy with the Annual Exhibition. She has played the major role in organizing and co-ordinating most of the behind-the-scenes activities, with Marija in learning mode.
Gillian has tried to leave no stone unturned so that Bronwyn and her team of helpers at the set-up and opening etc. will just go through the motions.
Thanks to Marija Patterson for her planning, wisdom and computing skills that she has performed in and out of family illnesses and things. She has gone off on a trip to Darwin with her partner Brian on a well-earned rest, and will be back before the exhibition ends.
Meredith Plain has also been very busy with her data base, press releases and heaps of ideas. We look forward to the fruits of her labours. Michael and Jenny are advising in the wings.
In advance thanks to the set-up team: John Bishop, Mark Cowie, Denise Dempsey, Meredith Plain, John Wooller and any other willing hands.
Special thanks to Pam Bradsworth for her help in supplying the Award labels etc.
Especial thanks to all those sculptors who are exhibiting and will make sure that they are at Montsalvat between 3.00 and 5.00 pm Sunday 31st August. Here’s to a successful Annual Exhibition!

Sitting at Montsalvat

We want you to enjoy your time sitting at Montsalvat. We are only sitting in the weekends. Your role is to talk to the visitors and answer any questions they may have. The key is interaction. Make the sale but from then on you do not have to do any paperwork as all of this is done by the staff at the desk.
Please hand out the People’s Choice slips and encourage them to really look at the sculptures before they make a decision. It seems to be much more fun for the visitors to participate in this. 4,500 people voted at the Flower Show.
Their prize is lunch for two at the Montsalvat CafĂ© – which is a very nice place to go.

Please note: Sculpture Deliveries to Montsalvat
will be from 3pm to 5pm on Sunday 31st August
