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.
Our AGM is to be held on Wednesday 9th of October. We would urge members to attend to discuss the past year’s events and to hear what we have in store for the coming year. This of course include exhibitions and meetings. Please come to support your committee who have supported you throughout the year.
An added bonus for the evening is that Stuart Purves, director of Australian Galleries has agreed to talk to us about his interest and involvement in sculpture and his thoughts about the future of sculpture. Australian Galleries, opened in 1956, has developed a reputation for supporting prominent Australian artists.
