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 am back unopposed as president as are most of the previous committee members and while I am happy to work with this great group of people it was disappointing that there were no other nominations. So the same people are again doing the committee work.
I would like to thank retiring members Suzanne Kaldor and Monica Mauer for their help and support and Robert Kendi who has come on board as Membership secretary and Pat O’Connell who is helping with distribution of the newsletter.
The numbers of members at the Annual General meeting was also disappointing especially as we had such an interesting, inspiring speaker in Damien Vick.
