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.

Work by Sonia Payes in the McClelland Gallery Survey Exhibition
9 November The ASV is privileged to have Sonia Payes as guest speaker for the AGM on November 9. Sonia Payes is a photographer, new media artist and sculptor. She has had 14 solo exhibitions and been included in over 50 group shows both in Australia and overseas including Auckland, Shanghai, London and Los Angeles. Her works are held in numerous public, corporate and private collections including the NGV. Most recently her (MAP) sculpture, ReGeneration was acquired as permanent public art by the City of Melville in Perth. In 2014 Payes was the recipient of the McClelland Achievement Prize (MAP). A survey of Payes’ work spanning 2007 – 2016 and featuring over 50 works provides an insight into the evolution of her work from photography through to sculpture, animation and new media, and showcasing the transformation of her 2D imagery into 3D sculptural reality. Currently showing at McClelland Gallery, the exhibition ends on November 6. Well worth a visit.
