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.

You and the ASV website

New members to the ASV receive a welcome email which, amongst other things describes how to log in to the website to enter details of your sculpture practice. Your profile page on the website can act as a portal to the rest of the information you have online about yourself:
  • you can edit your details such as address and phone numbers 
  • you can upload one profile image - hopefully a portrait of yourself at work
  • you can upload an artist’s biography to describe yourself and your practice.
  • show your ABN, external website and preferred sculpture media
  • the styles and scale of work that you undertake, and possible settings for that work
  • and whether you work to commission or run classes

So the next question is - how do I log in to do all this? Most members don’t remember... or joined before the website had this facility... wow that was a while ago!

Ok - open sculptorsvictoria.asn.au and click on member log in the black tab box on the top right hand side of the screen.

Enter your email address (the one you signed up to the ASV with) as your username and then click on the lost password link. You will be emailed a link or a password and from there you will be able to log into the site and give yourself a new, memorable password.

Suppose you did all this when you first joined up - and then never looked again? Life changes and so does the website and sometimes defaults prevail when they shouldn’t - please log in every so often to make sure that your profile still reflects you.

Apart from all this - entries for exhibitions are made through our newsletter website where we can create Google Forms and automatically merge to a temporary database before uploading the final information to the main site.
