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.

Letter from the President for November and December

Dear Members,

The last newsletter for 2012… Where did the year go?  It has been very busy year sculpturally with all our exhibitions to prepare for. Not a great year for sales but that unfortunately is a sign of the times. The exhibitions have all been really grand and given us all something to work towards and an opportunity to display our work..
