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.

Are you looking for new audiences for your artwork? Set in the heart of the Yarra Valley, purpose built in timber and mud-brick by sculptor Ernst Fries, We are now offering Flexible Options for artists to exhibit in one or more of the three rooms. Each room has a mix of large and small wall spaces which are ideal for artists who want to exhibit only a few artworks or are experimenting with a new series and looking for feedback.

The gallery will still be available for solo or group shows and exhibitions will run for 6 weeks (or shorter by arrangement) with prices inclusive of curation, advertising, opening, manning.
