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.

MIFGS 2019

Dear Sculptors,

As you may be aware entries for the ASV exhibition at the 2019 MIFGS are now open and preparations are in full swing.

Last year was my first year as Coordinator for the show and it was a great experience with working with the ASV and MIFGS teams to ensure all went smoothly. The exhibition was a real success only due to the high quality of the entries and the cooperation and helpfulness of the sculptors. We had 125 entries from 65 artists. Over the 5 days we had over 6000 People’s Choice votes and sold 23 sculptures ( approximately 20%). This year efforts are being made to improve the quality of our presentation ( tent, signage, etc) as well increasing our promotional activity. We are paying particular attention to the Estate section to see how we can attract the right sort of buyers to improve sales.

If you have any questions or suggestions please feel free to email me (asv_mifgs@sculptorsvictoria.asn.au)

I look forward to seeing your entries and to working with you again.

Best wishes
Paul Cacioli ASV Coordinator for the MIFGS Exhibition
