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.

From the President

Hi all,

January is nearly over and we have already held a successful exhibition at Herring Island.. Well done to all exhibitors and organisers. Now we have to get our creative juices flowing again. How hard that is at this time of year when it is hot, the tennis is on and we are trying to exercise to get rid if all the weight we put on over the festive season.

I am speaking from experience and finding it difficult to be creative. How great it is to have exhibitions to work towards. Entry forms are due for the Toorak Village exhibition and our own display at the International Flower and Garden Show.This will be Marks last Flower and Garden show so we wish him all the best with it and good luck to Paul Cacioli and Yvonne Monik who will take over the reins. We have had some offers to take on Herring Island next year and Jenny Rickards is happy to help all she can for the continuation of our involvement in the Herring Island Arts Festival.

Now we look forward to a year of communicating our sculpture experiences, visiting studios and meeting at our monthly get togethers.

Please remember our committee is always happy to receive help and suggestions for the successful runnng of the Association and you are welcome to attend committee meetings or enquire about finances etc, Minutes of meetings are always available.

I am now heading to my tin shed where I will fight to keep my clay figure wet and me cool. All in the name of art! Love it! Good luck all.

Gillian
