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.

ASV Exhibitions 2021

Writing prior to achieving full Covid-normal is speculation - but the ASV intention is to run an exhibition program and adapt to the circumstances as creatively as we can. The first exhibition of the year will undoubtedly have Covid19 restrictions on visitor numbers, mask wearing and mixing of sculptors from different parts of the state. So for Herring Island at least we are unlikely to have our usual opening. We are looking at adapting by using our online exhibition capacity to present the work to a wider audience whilst still taking advantage of being in an exceptional space.

Here are the bones of our program - feel free to discuss with committee, each other and the coordinators.
