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 President

How do you keep visual art visual? The Association of Sculptors Victoria had more that 130 sculptures ready to exhibit in the Melbourne International Flower and Garden Show. What happened when that was cancelled due to COVID 19….... not visual art anymore!

So we have set up this virtual exhibition that will be seen online from 1st June.

We are sculptors not IT experts or photographers but on a huge learning curve we have done it.... A GREAT EXHIBITION OF SCULPTURES has become visual.

I would like to thank all who have contributed to make this possible. Especially Jenny Rickards.

Thanks again to Michael Adeney for his wonderful story about Andy Goldsworthy.

I hope you are all keeping safe. We still have a way to go but we are here for each other. Please feel free to telephone or email me or any committee member for any help or advice. If we can’t help I may be able to direct you to someone who can.

Gillian Govan
