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.

Meeting Notes

Housekeeping: Barbara Hyde sent thanks for the newsletter which Gillian sends her as a courtesy to a long standing member. Valda Cuming thanks everyone for the recognition of Honorary Life Membership.

Oops thanks to John Bishop (applause) - with all the people Gillian thanked in the last newsletter there was an omission - thank you John for all your help.

Xmas party - Carmel Ritchie hosts us on Sunday 24th November. (see below) Then...

Mary McMahon showed a -video about a self taught Indian artist Nek Chand. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F5RtTOs_Im8

Bruno’s Garden Marysville has been rebuilt, It is an inspiration to keep going. There were lots of helpers and the work was done..... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xgvlAG0GsN0 there’s plenty more so go hunting :-)

Then we noted an article about public art /sculpture. With commentary from Khapoor Robertson Swan et al. It was quite a discussion: ‘’all art is public." unless the artist says it’s private, What is the reason for public art? Too much to record - you had to be there since Gordon wasn’t to record it better.
