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.

ASV Exhibitions

Read on for upcoming ASV exhibitions - and get your work ready for each of them..... 

Herring Island Summer Arts Festival 11 to 27 January 2014

Planning is in hand for the festival - so what about our exhibition? It is proposed for 11th January to 27th January 2014. I’m intending to change the name of the exhibition - it’s had the same one since we started - so this year it’s "Island as place: Sculpture as Narrative" and "Narrative" for short. I’d like the demonstration event to be more active - Christopher Taylor did a great job last year - demonstrating and explaining - this year I thought we could try building ephemeral sculpture in the courtyard - and dismantling it on the last day to demonstrate its recyclable aspects. If you have ideas or would like to share in the planning for our exhibition let Jenny Rickards know on asv_hisaf@sculptorsvictoria.asn.au. If you would like to sit the exhibition but not exhibit you will be welcomed with open arms by those members who find that difficult - this exhibition is held in what passes for summer holidays - so let’s make it fun!

Entry forms are available - they will have been posted with the newsletter and/or you can enter online at http://sculperenewsletter.blogspot.com.au/p/blog-page.html This is not our actual website - we have some fine tuning to do before entry online is an efficient way to manage the paperwork. Hopefully this will be in hand by the time the MIFGS entries are ready for you. I will attempt to put them on the website - but if necessary I’ll email them to you - just contact me on asv_hisaf@sculptorsvictoria.asn.au and I’ll get them to you.

So mark the dates in your diary, decide if you want to be part of the Santa drop off - delivering work to the island on Saturday 21st December instead of Friday 10th January, be inspired with your work - a newish name for the exhibition - a new slant for your thoughts? and then come to the Christmas party and mingle and share ideas - you never know what will happen - but I for one will try to get you to enjoy some time on the island.

Cheers Jenny
