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.

Congratulations to Members

"Serenity" Marija Patterson

Congratulations to Marija Patterson for winning best in show at the Kilmore Art Expo with her piece “Serenity”.  Further congratulation too for Aukje van Vark who won the best sculpture with her piece “Drinking Giraffe”. 

Our very own Gillian Govan was the judge for the sculpture exhibition component and it was the first time sculpture had been included in this expo which has been running for 13 years, so we were absolutely thrilled that all three judges agreed on Marija’s sculpture for best in show.  Well done!
