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.

From the Exhibition Coordinator

Yvonne Monik "Lite Encounter"
Hi all.

Congratulations on another successful Annual Awards exhibition. We had some very excited award winners and some happy exhibitors who sold their works. It was good to see sculptors getting to know each other and chatting about their sculpting journey and techniques. It was great having a few new members exhibiting.

The Annual & Awards Exhibition 2018

The Exhibition Launch & Presentation event was on the Thursday. We had food, wine and music and the event was well attended. We did have to move the exhibition desk for the event which meant some works didn’t look their best on the night... but on the whole we went well. Chris Deutcher judged most of the prizes and gave the address at the presentation event.

Here are the comments for each of the prizes:

Tina Wentcher -First Prize-
Lana Thymianidis -116 STAND

Diary Dates

September There are no activities organised for September not for lack of ideas but for a lack of someone to carry them through.

A group visit to Point Leo Estate has been suggested - possibly without eating in the restaurant there. Let us know if you are interested in getting a group together.

You can see Gavin Roberts suggestion further on in the newsletter too....

Next in the Exhibition Program

The dust hasn't settled on the Annual Exhibition yet... but we are planning our next moves:
MIFGS 2019
Dear Members,
The dates for next year’s MIFGS have been set so we just want to give you a heads-up on the timeline for what we need to be done.

Members' News and Comments

Thank you

I am on holiday now but I cannot allow the time to go by without thanking the committee and members for honouring me with life membership. It has been a privilege to be a member of the ASV and while a challenge at times I have enjoyed what have done and gained more than I have given. The top of the list being some wonderful friends. Thank you Anna for the beautifully crafted medallion.

Activities Proposal from Gavin Roberts

I would love to package a day trip to Stratford for the ASV members. We have a 4km Shakespearean based sculpture walk and can also have lunch and an artist talk in the theatre.
