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.

Report on the April Meeting

The last meeting was held at the Armadale Meeting Rooms, 2 Fulton Street Armadale. The evening had to be changed at short notice to the Thursday - the Wednesday evenings being booked out totally. We had some video material and discussion on kinetic sculpture - it was fun - but only 8 people turned up.

So could you help us by answering a few questions, with comments if you feel inclined:
Are you interested in attending ASV meetings:
◊ only if the location is suitable? We have a far flung membership and won’t be able to suit everyone - but we can try. If you were one of the brave 8 - what did you think of the Armadale meeting rooms?
◊ on a Wednesday evening? We were meeting on the second Wednesday of the month
◊ on a Thursday evening? The Armadale meeting rooms are available on the second Thursday of the month
◊ with outside guest speakers?
◊ With ASV members running interesting talks about their own or others’ interesting sculpture?
◊ How many meetings a year would you attend if other conditions were right?
◊ Are you interested in running a meeting or helping to coordinate activities?
