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.


Mark Cowie has done an amazing job with MIFGS. It is possibly due to his enthusiasm that so many outside sculptors are showing work with us - and congratulations to all the sculptors who rose to the challenge of the grand Central Boulevarde of the Carlton Gardens.

By the time this newsletter reaches you , the winners will have been announced, the presentations made and the public will have cast their seal of approval on the works - hopefully with lots of sales - there is no greater compliment to the artist than to provide a loving home for their work.

Always innovating - the name panels for each work this year have a Quick Response code that links (via a smart phone app) to each sculptor’s profile page. On the left you can see the code for Mark’s profile (sorry if this is embarrassing Mark). We’ll see how the experiment goes with the public.

Images of MIFGS will be processed to the website as soon as they can - with nearly 120 works there is a bit of work to do.
