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.

The June Meeting

The evening of 12 June was cold and raining.In spite of this 17 of us turned up at the Ashburton Uniting Church Meeting Rooms, Mary van den Broek gave us a slide show and talk mainly about the ISC
symposium in New Zealand last February.
My rather chaotic notes contain scribbles such as:

  • Zhang Whang .
  • floating island. 
  • Gibbs Farm. 
  • exotic animals 
  • Peter Nichols 
  • Chris Booth stacked stones  
  • Andy Goldsworthy 
  • 1,000 acres. 
  • Stringer Gallery moving walls.  
  • Phil Price 

We were treated to visions of sculpture on a grand scale including some land forming.I'm sorry that Gordon Robertson wasn't able write his usual excellent report. You can check the ISC New Zealand Symposium on http://sculpture.org/nz2013/postnz.shtml. Mary also attended asculpture and place symposium in Canberra which provided another feast of images and inspiration for discussion. As well as a stimulating talk there was also discussion over coffee. The meetings are back to the size where the chat in the break is as beneficial as the guest lecture.

so - see you at the next meeting: 

Wednesday 10th July for a full session of "show and tell" The meeting will commence at 7:30pm and as usual will be at the Ashburton Uniting Church meeting rooms. Enter from the Marquis Street car park.
