Accompanying the exhibition the exhibiting sculptors have run demonstration events in the courtyard. The work with power tools is noisy - but faster. The more traditional hand tools have given us time to talk to visitors. Each of the sculptors here are also exhibiting work in the gallery - often indicating the breadth of sculptural expression with work in different media. The intimate scale of the gallery gives us the opportunity to show work in different media and styles - John Wooller, in particular,launching a departure from his amazing carved and turned wood and giving us a range of fabricated metal sculptures - two of them maquettes for larger works.
Images of the sculpture will be available on the Association of Sculptors of Victoria web site in due course. After this exhibition the artists are preparing work for the Melbourne International Flower and Garden Show - a different environment where you will see outdoor, garden sculptures - and again the demonstrators will be out in force.
