Members are asked to note the Sculpture by the Sea 2010 Exhibition at Bondi, included in Interstate Activities below. The three new $30,000 Helen Lempriere Sculpture Scholarships will be selected from the applicants for Sculpture by the Sea at Bondi, so interested scholarship applicants will need to meet the conditions for the Bondi Exhibition. The exact closing date for applications may be as soon as 16 April 2010. We appreciate that is not far off but we have had no prior notice of this date. ASV members who are interested in being considered for the Scholarships need therefore to urgently plan a submission for Sculpture by the Sea at Bondi.
This edition includes an essay by Michael Meszaros on Ideas and Style in Sculpture. I think this is a subject worthy of some debate, and am happy to take Letters to the Editor on the subject, or other subjects for that matter, subject to editing.
I apologise to Janice for misstating Janice McCarthy as Judith McCarthy in this section in the last newsletter. To compound the injury we omitted to mention that we sold her “Medusoid” (the silver jellyfish) at Herring Island.
News for future newsletters will have to be cut off on the 15th of each month rather than 20th.
Members are reminded about the need for an Activities Coordinator from 1 May, in order for monthly meetings to be continued. Please consider Committee positions for the 2010/2011 year.
