The Low Countries Sculpture Society was founded this year to increase
communication and foster discussion between sculpture historians,
conservators, collectors, curators, custodians, creators and all
those interested and enthusiastic about this medium, as well as to
enable the research and preservation, both materially and
intellectually, of sculpture, medals and sculptors' drawings from the
Low Countries, from antiquity to the present day. The website will be
instrumental in achieving this, as well as a busy programme of
events. Membership is available from only 15 Euro p.a.

programme may be found on www.lowcountriessculpture.org.
