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

How do you keep visual art visual? The Association of Sculptors Victoria had more that 130 sculptures ready to exhibit in the Melbourne International Flower and Garden Show. What happened when that was cancelled due to COVID 19….... not visual art anymore!

So we have set up this virtual exhibition that will be seen online from 1st June.

We are sculptors not IT experts or photographers but on a huge learning curve we have done it.... A GREAT EXHIBITION OF SCULPTURES has become visual.

Garden Sculpture Online

The inaugural Association of Sculptures of Victoria (ASV) virtual sculpture exhibition, the Melbourne International Flower & Garden Show,

Garden Sculpture On-Line.


We’ve paraphrased from Paul’s letter to exhibitors - work continues up to the final minute to get the show online.

Andy Goldsworthy

At our recent exhibition Ebb & Flow on Herring Island, if you took a moment to wander, you would have come across a beautifully shaped cairn made from Castlemaine slate. This piece (titled Cairn) is the work of British sculptor and photographer Andy Goldsworthy.  Andy’s work is unique in its use of natural settings and media to create temporary or lasting sculptures that reflect a sense of deep connection with nature.

Hi All,

How are you all going?  Its great having the extra time to do our creating but soooo difficult to be motivated in these uncertain times. But it is a good time to ponder on new ideas, do drawings or even change direction.

The committee has been meeting on Zoom every 2 weeks to get the online MIFGS exhibition up and running. All very new experiences for all of us.

Now Jenny has switched her thoughts to the newsletter. We have been very grateful for Michael Adenay’s contribution with his very interesting articles over the past few months. If you can contribute to the newsletter please contact us: Information, ideas, new techniques or even links to You Tubes that you have found useful or interesting.

If you have any concerns, problems or ideas feel free to call any of the committee. Our Mobile numbers are on the end of the newsletter.
Keep safe. 
Gillian Govan President
