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.
Herring Island Exhibition Opening
On the Sunday members of the other exhibiting groups joined us to add the demonstration event to the festival. The images show Charlie Solomon from the Koorie Heritage Trust working with wood and hot wire, and Janet Matthews from the Wildlife Art Society of Australasia.
And then – in contrast – as I was closing the gallery on Saturday I witnessed the fire on the south-eastern arterial – fortunately there were no serious injuries – but it's a reminder that life can be scary at a moment's notice.
The preview cruise was cancelled due to lack of bookings – a pity after last year's enjoyable evening but predictable given the price rise. I look forward to seeing you on the island – you will be delighted with the work there and hopefully inspired to put something in next year.
