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.

President's Letter for October

Dear Members

It is with great pleasure that I write this letter with my sincere congratulations to all the entries in the 2012 Exhibition and Awards. A great effort. The opening went well and the prizes were duly awarded. Congratulations to all the winners.  My special Thanks go to Beatrice Magalotti and all those who helped. Congratulations.

The October Meeting

The 18 members who attended the October meeting were treated to a fascinating presentation by the Internationally recognized Turkish/Australian sculptor Fatih Samiz.  Fatih came to Australia from Istanbul in 2008 and has been a full time sculptor since then. His work spans a wide range of media from stone, concrete to all types of metal and techniques including sand casting of aluminum.
