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.

Melbourne International Flower & Garden Show

Dear fellow artists,

Next year will be the 25th Anniversary of Melbourne International Flower and Garden Show MIFGS). IMG the organising company are wanting to make it the best show ever and are inviting back previous years’ show garden winners and sites have been rearranged to accommodate the expanded show. The result of this rearrangement is that the ASV exhibition will not be located in the Central Boulevard. We have been given a site located towards the corner of Rathdowne and Victoria Street (site 77A). The site is well located and as large as our normal site. IMG are trying to create an art precinct around our exhibition so that it becomes a destination within MIFGS. With this in mind we are planning to hold more workshops as well as including street art. We will also be calling for artists to do some sculptures that would be suitable for the entrances to the ASV exhibition.

As more details are finalised we will keep you posted.

Best wishes
Paul Cacioli
Coordinator ASV Exhibition, MIFGS
