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.

Some of the Sculpture stands we use are the property of the Festival - a great asset for those sculptors who are not able to carry both stands and work to the gallery from the punt landing. The stands were paid for from donations made during the festival. Donations have also supported restoration of a work in the permanent collection on the island and the installation of additional hanging rails for 2D works in the gallery.
And a blue work? There are likely to be a few - but we have images of this one.
