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.

The July Meeting


Meredith in Bolin Bolin Gallery
The July meeting was hosted by Meredith Plain at the well known Bulleen Art and Garden (BAAG) centre in Manningham road East Bulleen. Meredith is a staunch member and supporter of ASV and a successful ceramic artist in her own right for the past 25 years. Due to the cold and rainy weather, the tour of the garden and grounds was abandoned in favour of a really fascinating slide show and talk by Meredith of her extensive coverage of sculpture gardens in many other countries including England, Denmark, Portugal, Spain, and France.

An alert from our alien artefacts expert - Rudi Jass

During recent test drilling for Melbourne’s new east west tunnel, the crew discovered what seems to be an ancient artefact.

I’m loving the vibe and the class, we even have a great soundtrack playing in the background every week. Gasworks has been amazing!

Untutored 2.5 hr session with life model.
