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.

Dates for your Diary

25 August Dismantle Annual Exhibition

Activities for the remainder of the year

1. As you see by the dates for your diary we have an exciting visit to the blacksmith in July. As we have the Annual Exhibition in August we will not have a meeting. But what will we do in September? I will be away and at this stage have nothing planned for the September meeting. Would anyone like to open their studio? Do you know a sculptor who would talk to us. Have you any ideas. Please contact me. I am hoping to organise a figure drawing class sometime and another foundry visir but not before I go away. Please help to fill the gap. 2. Nyora would also like to run a full day session for 10 people sculpting directly from a model in wax. 10am to 3pm. $210 per person after mid August, Please lt me know if you are interested and I will organise a group. Nyora also offer life drawing sessions http://nyorastudio.com/classes-and-workshops/

3. A group visit to Point Leo Estate has been suggested - possibly without eating in the restaurant there. Let us know if you are interested in getting a group together.
