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.

From the President

 

Hi All.

Another month with time on our hands, but sometimes difficult to get motivated. However, I hope you can find some inspiration and energy. Whether we are hobby sculptors working for the pleasure or professional sculptors, we need a challenge, a target, a purpose. We hope next year we are able to provide all of those because we have some interesting exhibitions and activities to look forward to.  We have three exhibitions in the planning stage at the moment. Just to whet your appetite Herring Island Arts Festival starts in January. Then we have booked the Victorian Artist Society Galleries for our Annual and Awards exhibition in June.  In November one of our country members is enthusiastically planning a very exciting exhibition at Sale. Who knows we may even have an Exhibition at Tesselaar. That is still in negotiation. But even so it is already looking like a great year ahead so we are looking forward to seeing some of your new or older works for Gippsland and some new exciting works for our other Exhibitions. We also have a few activities on the drawing board. We can tell you more when we meet you on our next Zoom. 

Happy Sculpting and best wishes to all 
Gillian
