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.

Members' News

Through the support of the Tina Wentcher Award, Lana Thymianidis recently practised in a studio residency in Norway. During her stay, she worked out of the remote village of Austmarka researching patterns in nature and developing her latest body of work. Her next series examines depictions of fleeting paper objects (including paper boats and planes) that are cast into bronze. Lana looks forward to returning to Norway for her solo exhibition in Oslo in 2020
