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 Enter

Below are exhibition opportunities that have come in over the month - remember to check Art Almanac for others that we may not have received: 

Melbourne Prize for Urban Sculpture
The Melbourne Prize for Urban Sculpture highlights the importance of the aesthetic quality and liveability of the urban environment and its relationship with sculpture, in all its forms.

The 2017 program will be similar to 2014 but we have some exciting additions. It would also be good to discuss opportunities to raise awareness of the ROI if it is of interest.
