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.

Artists' Moral Rights

Michael Meszaros and Gillian Govan worked together to draw attention to the lack of acknowledgment of sculptors’ authorship of their work in an article in the RACV magazine Royalauto. This action is one way that we can support each other as artists.

At Herring Island we had an incident where a photographer came to the show with full kit and a large tripod to photograph works for his own purposes - this triggered a lively exchange and will no doubt lead to further clarification of our policy on photography at exhibitions - contributions are welcome.
