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.

At McClelland Gallery: Another Dimension
Last Weeks

Exhibition Closes Sunday July 15

The exhibition Another Dimension explores the dynamic relationship between form and content in contemporary art, by positioning sculpture as part of a broader two and three-dimensional spatial practice. It represents the fluid relations that now exist between image and object, in contrast to traditional artistic categories where a clearer definition between pictorial and physical space can be found.
