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.

September Meeting

Rosa Tato has through her community art project gained an understanding of the essence of human experience. Her "Embracing Distance " sculptured panels reflect the cultural diversity and personal mementos and histories of some of the residents in a public housing tower in North Melbourne who have resettled I Melbourne from 16 different countries including Somalia Egypt Sudan, China, Vietnam and Spain.
We are most fortunate that Rosa has agreed to talk to us about this project. Thanks to one of our members Mary McMahon for setting this up for us. We look forward to seeing you on Wednesday 11th September 7:30pm at Ashburton.
