Schoolhouse Gallery Renovations
We are coming to the end (after 24 weeks) of renovation to the Old Schoolhouse Galllery and to the Benowa site.
The Old Schoolhouse Gallery & ramp has been repaired and repainted, also the perimeter fence, coach lamps and doors to the sculptors studio.
There is a new slatted screen wall almost finished, to the south of the sculptor's courtyard.
Thank you to the sculptors and potters for their patience during the past few months. It has all been worth while.
Thank you also to member Allen Frentz, we now have four amazing new workbenches in the Sculptor's courtyard (handbuilt last weekend).
At the Sculptors’ Society Gold Coast we promote a wider interest in sculpture on the Gold Coast and its periphery. The Society offers sculptors and people interested in this art form a point of contact where issues related to sculpture can be discussed.
We also aim to communicate with similar bodies in Queensland and other states. Members’ skills range from the amateur and hobbyist through to the professional. The Society encourages new members to join in to work, learn, exchange ideas and enjoy the company of like-minded people.
