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.
I have just returned from almost 3 weeks in Vietnam. I turned off my iPhone and only checked my emails 3 times…. Bliss. When I returned I opened my emails and realised what busy lives we all lead. There was information about Tesselaar, Our Annual Exhibition and Awards, our involvement in Herring Island Summer Arts Festival and many other exhibitions in which our members are involved. Part of me says “we are too busy” and part says, “How very lucky we are to have the ability, the opportunity and the money to pursue our art.” I met one lady in Vietnam who said, “I am happy I have food” It was a very humbling experience.
