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.

Exhibitions to see, items to discuss


Interesting items here - and some are closing soon so read on and check it all out:

Rod Sanders has been to see Bruce Armstrong’s exhibition and sent The Age article about the show - well worth reading before you go. Also Rod sent images of new public sculptures around the Frankston area - worth checking out: http://www.frankston.vic.gov.au/Your_Council/Media_and_Publications/Latest_News/New_Public_Sculptures
He gave us images including the locations of the works - They should be at the AGM for members to take a look
