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.

Copyright Win

Both Geoff Williams and Rudi Jass sent articles about Greg Johns' successful copyright case against Temple Door recently. The out of court settlement is reported to include the return and destruction of the copied works, an apology and an undisclosed amount of money. Apparently works by Rudi Jass and Bert Flugelman were also mentioned in the settlement. According to the report the solicitor representing Greg Johns said that although copyright cases are not unusual, artists frequently did not have the resources to pursue them.
