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.

A Letter for July

Photographer & assistants at work - AAE 2019
This year’s annual has met with some challenges. The first being finding a new venue which was suitably located within the city. Yvonne spent many a day walking the streets ( in a good way) and speaking with various building managers to finally secure us a place for our Annual. Yvonne did an amazing job and was fully supported by Gillian and Jenny. However this was but the first of the challenges. After securing the premises there came the conditions placed upon us by the management. They would only accept 60 sculptures and due to the location being very public they have very strict "nudity" rules, which resulted in several sculptures being inadmissible. Yvonne faced these challenges the way that Hercules fulfilled his Labours. With the support of the team Yvonne was able to successfully organize this year’s Annual. Although there are limited entries, which we had no control over, the quality and standard is excellent, again showing the wonderful diversity of skills and talent we have within our Association.

We wish to thank everyone for their understanding and cooperation and we hope to see many red dots during the course of the exhibition.

Best wishes
