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.
A huge thank you to all the exhibitors that have entered. Without you there would not be an exhibition. This year we have 120 sculptures from 69 Sculptors. Looking forward to seeing the sculptures standing proud in the foyer of the grand Bourke Place.
25 August Dismantle Annual Exhibition
Activities for the remainder of the year
1. As you see by the dates for your diary we have an exciting visit to the blacksmith in July. As we have the Annual Exhibition in August we will not have a meeting. But what will we do in September? I will be away and at this stage have nothing planned for the September meeting. Would anyone like to open their studio? Do you know a sculptor who would talk to us. Have you any ideas. Please contact me. I am hoping to organise a figure drawing class sometime and another foundry visir but not before I go away. Please help to fill the gap.
The estate hosts the smithy and a wood turning workshop.
All the best - we look forward to seeing your work in exhibitions.
