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.

Are we nearly there yet?

The big day is soon! Organising the Annual and Awards Exhibition is in the last frantic days of making sure that this will be an awesome exhibition.

A huge thank you to all the exhibitors that have entered. Without you there would not be an exhibition. This year we have 120 sculptures from 69 Sculptors. Looking forward to seeing the sculptures standing proud in the foyer of the grand Bourke Place.

We have a great team of organisers that work tirelessly and put in many hours to make this a memorable event. Publicity always plays a huge part in making the Annual a success. It would be appreciated if you could all send out invitations to all your friends and contacts.

This year the judging of the MGWHT for entrants with more than 10 years sculpture experience will be judged by the exhibiting member sculptors. The first prize of $2000 has been generously donated by the Gunnersen family. The medallion designed by Michael Meszaros and donated by the ASV. The Tina Wentcher Prize will be judged by Chris Deutscher (external judge), ASV acting President Gillian Govan and ASV member Marija Patterson.

Soooo - Get your plinths painted, sculptures ready to go and plan your delivery for Saturday 4th August.
