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.

We are now on the mailing list for the Gold Coast Art News Flash - an 18 page newsletter. Your editor has been slack and not gone through it for items to interest you - I could stand a helper for this perhaps? Some months the newsletter would be a better offering with some editorial assistance - think about it for perhaps a little longer than it took to decide you couldn’t help in November

Hello friends, colleagues, and associates,
This year I created game (app for tablets) to help kids learn country names and locations. It’s called GeoFrog and went live on the AppStores this week, I’m quite proud of it:
· itunes.apple.com/us/app/geofrog/id1305535512?ls=1&mt=8
· play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.GeoFrog.sample&hl=en
I hope you don’t mind me reaching out for a little assistance to get the word out. If you’re able to download/review/share/comment/like/forward (whatever you’re comfortable with) to friends/family who have kids, that would be a great help and I’d be deeply thankful.
