The ASV invites member sculptors to submit works for inclusion to the Elliot ASV Gallery, at a partial refreshment of the exhibition at the end of February. Now over one third of the exhibits installed at the opening in November have been sold. The Elliot ASV Gallery is at 356-358 Punt Road, South Yarra, 3141. The exhibition is open Tuesday to Saturday 9.00 am to 5.00 pm each week. Commissions are 10% + GST for gallery sponsor John Elliot and 10% for ASV. Placement is the prerogative of John Elliot as owner of the gallery space, acting with the advice of Michael Meszaros. Items sold now are being replaced, and we aim to replace some of those not sold by end February with different works. A completely refreshed exhibition is planned for end of April. We are happy to accept works from previous ASV exhibitions. Would you please submit now for outdoor sculptures to be included in the end-February refreshment exercise, and send sketches and/or photos (2 copies please) with dimensions and asking prices by Friday February 4 to the following address:

The Taits would like to provide the ASV with an opportunity to:
• Add a bi-annual event to its exhibiting calendar;
• promote and publicise ASV to a broader audience;
• support ASV sculptors;
• conduct a membership drive that attracts sculptors from the Central Victoria region to
become ASV members; and
• generate additional revenue for ASV (commissions and memberships).
The exhibition (and prize) is open to ASV members and other sculptors.
All sculpture (of any dimensions) will eligible, as long as work can be securely/safely exhibited in a public environment. Entries can be either indoor or outdoor work, but must be able to withstand outdoor exhibition conditions for ten days. Sculptures do not need to be new work, just good work.

exhibition. Notification of final prize-money to be awarded will be issued to members in due course.
