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.
There were too few people present to achieve a quorum but reports were heard and some discussion took place on the motions on the agenda. The financial report for the year 2007 - 2008 was presented and some discussion took place. The meeting noted the loss on running MIFGS 2008 and also the larger than usual loss for the annual and awards exhibition 2008 (not in the 2007 - 2008 financial year).
The meeting was adjourned to Wednesday 19th November at 7:30pm in the Community Arts Room. Members wishing to vote on any matter need to attend as no further proxies or votes can be accepted.
