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.

Garden Sculpture Online

"Edward the Eagle" Chris Anderson
The inaugural Association of Sculptures of Victoria (ASV) virtual sculpture exhibition, the Melbourne International Flower & Garden Show,

Garden Sculpture On-Line.

We’ve paraphrased from Paul’s letter to the committee.

"Bunjil" Vicki Combridge
I have the Google Analytics Report up to 21st June. After speaking with Alberto this report covers the whole ASV site but is a good reflection of the activity the online exhibition has generated. Typically we have around 20 users a day on our website. Towards the end of May activity increased - higher number of users as we started working on the website and announced to our members of the online exhibition.  You can see we are averaging slightly more than 50 users a day and we have had a total of 1432 new users during this time frame. We had a peak on the 11th of June which was the time IMG posted the event on Instagram. Users for that day increased to 257 but the bounce rate was around 80%, which means people are entering the site but leave without going any further.
"Nina" Christine Sage

We had a total of 266 Peoples Choice Votes:
Courtyard 107 Votes and the winner is Nina by Christine Sage with 19 votes.
Garden 86 votes and the winner is Bunjil by Vicki Combridge with 12 votes
Estate 73 votes and the winner is Edward the Eagle with 22 votes.

We have had one sale: Symbiosis by Emily Karanikolopoulos. We have potential sale of two more; Issa Ouattara’s Love Your Shadow and Sun Clown. All buyers are from Queensland and the biggest hurdle has been to find a company that can pack and ship interstate economically. Pack and Send seem to be the best at this stage
Best wishes
