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 ASV Members

Apart from running the online garden sculpture exhibition ASV members have been active adapting to 2020 as we find it - day by day and week by week.... read on....

Gippsland Exhibition

Gavin Roberts is offering to organise an exhibition down his way. He is very keen as long as we get interest from our members.

He has already made contact with a couple of people - will get back to us next week with ideas
This would be an exhibition with the work physically present so there is a bit of planning to do.

Do let is know if you would participate.


Στούντιο Kαφέ | Open To The Public | Australia, Northcote

Step past the front gate and wander down the side alley of a quiet suburban house to find a tiny backyard shed.

Inside this shed you will connect, create and experience a system of exchange without currency.
Artist Lana Thymianidis has spent isolation converting a shed into a studio, cafe and interaction space in Northcote, Melbourne.
Visitors can expect Greek coffee, tea and sweets… and getting your hands dirty sanding sculptures in exchange for your tab.

The emphasis on Greece notes Lana’s heritage as she reconnects with her roots in this city. This theme also draws on a culture of gathering over rituals of eating and drinking while connecting.
Στούντιο Kαφέ is now open by appointment to the public June 6 - June 26. The only prerequisite to visit is interest to participate. Contact Lana for details through lthymiansite@gmail.com or the following form: https://www.lanathymian.com/contact

I've had a variety of participants including artists, council representatives, gallery owners, among others. I'm interested in sharing this with ASV members and I'd like to personally invite you. I appreciate this would have been suitable to include in the newsletter for this month! I just had the idea of sharing it with you after deciding to open it to the public. Is there a way you can still assist me to share this with the ASV community?

Kind regards,
Lana Thymianidis
