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.

President's Letter for November and December


Hi All,


Welcome to the November / December newsletter like all of us Jenny is busy so a combined newsletter is coming your way. Even so it contains all you need to know about coming exhibitions and events and so much more.


I have recently spent an interesting enjoyable weekend in Hobart. The main purpose was to visit MONA (Museum of New and Modern Art). What an experience!

Letter from a Member

I joined ASV in January 2013 and have been mightily impressed by the collective talent amongst members coupled with the diverse range of styles and media in the exhibited works. My first ASV exhibition as a participant was at the Kinross Arts Centre and I thoroughly enjoyed the experience: no sales but heaps of positive feedback and I enjoyed spending time chatting with the exhibition curator, Monica Mauer Jan, and our hard-working President, Gillian Govan.

Serious

The ASV website lists about 190 people as ASV members. Of these about 80 have paid their membership subscription for this year. Another 40 paid for 2012-2013 but have not so far paid for 2013-2014.
