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.

Meetings & Workshops

Chris Anderson would like to invite members to his workshop on the 13th April, which is the bump in for the Kilmore Art Expo.  “The bump in is in the morning, so we could have an afternoon open workshop visit at my place, just 10 minutes out of Kilmore.  I have 183 acres of land and would be happy for members to come and explore the property looking for inspiration to their hearts content. I have 30 horses, lots of kangaroos, eagles, kookaburras, platypus, echidnas, sugar gliders, possums, bats, owls etc.  I will do a demonstration of my sculpture processes etc at 1 pm and we could even have a bonfire, pizza and wine night for who ever is still here for the sunset.  From my house on top of the hill we have a 360 degree view of the sunset.  Members are welcome to camp if they wish, and the night sky here is amazing because we are far enough from the city lights.”
