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.

Activities Proposal from Gavin Roberts - Let's just set a date and do this one!

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. An idea of a Sunday itinerary would be

8.04am depart Train Southern Cross station

11.05 Arrive Stratford

11.15 Welcome and guided tour through half of the Stratford Arts trail and 1x artist studio

1.15 pm lunch catered by the Segue community centre

1.45pm Artist talk in the Historic Courthouse theatre building by international Glass Sculptor Chrystal Stubbs.

2.30pm second half of the Stratford Arts trail and Visit 1x artist studio

5.11pm depart Stratford

8.19pm arrive Melbourne


Cost $50 per head plus the train ticket.

This is all just proposed at this stage but thought I would put it out there to see what you think and I can talk to Crystal and put a firm date together. It would need to be pre booked and capped at 50 people for catering purposes.
