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.

With the fantastic response to the Melbourne International Flower & Garden Show being reflected in numbers visiting and also sales it is a great time to reflect on what this means not only to the ASV but the general arts community.

Grame Wilkie’s comment of art as a Visual Language is critical to a view of ourselves as artists.

To walk through the show and engage with the visitors is both an opportunity and challenge, often needing to explain (and affirm to ourselves) why and what we do as artists when colour, texture, scale and form are ‘our’ language, the interaction often making the work ‘come alive’ to the viewer.

As the Annual Exhibition is fast approaching, although a vastly different event, it is the perfect opportunity that should reflect the versatility of the creative mind.

Start the creative juices flowing NOW!!!!
