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.

The March meeting with John Bishop

Edrington Exhibition
John Bishop and his work mainly in limestone.

A select group of us enjoyed an evening with John Bishop. He talked about how he got started in sculpture - his approach to his work and his progress.
John was an active figure at the recent MIFGS - both as an exhibitor and as a demonstrator - working through rain and shine and inspiring lots of people.
Here are his three works from MIFGS: Fragment, Neo and Plant Form #3
There’s a Youtube clip from 2011 that’s really worth watching too - see it here https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=1&v=LgfcLf64mvI
