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.

From the President

Hi All,
Gillian Govan President

Another month. And what a month. Thanks to all those who entered the online exhibition and to those who made it happen.

I know things are not easy in the art world at the moment but it is so reassuring that the Association is so important to its members. We are already looking towards post Covid times when we can organise exhibitions again and join together for meetings.

Antony Gormley

A crow’s call evaporates in the heat, a shimmering horizon beckons you forward, the white sands of the salt lake crisp under your feet. There in the distance, a form, human but other-worldly, - a dissolved figure, somehow touching a sense of humanity in this land of alienation.  This is number twenty-six, there are another twenty-five to see spread over the ten square kilometers of the white sands of Lake Ballard in Western Australia.  Welcome to the world of British sculptor Antony Gormley.

From ASV Members

Apart from running the online garden sculpture exhibition ASV members have been active adapting to 2020 as we find it - day by day and week by week.... read on....

Opportunities

At this stage it is difficult to know which exhibitions are going ahead and which not... Best to watch Art Almanac and the various websites.
