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.

We had a long list of thanks - art is definitely a team effort. And then we got on to presenting the prizes:

The Times are a Changing

I could not but note with interest that on visiting one of the larger hardware stores that they stock and retail 3d printers. Primarily aimed at the building trade I feel that they will be taken up by the home handyman and also by someone like myself who is constantly on the look out for tools and material to assist me in my creative endeavours.
