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.

Herring Island Summer Arts Festival 2021

Herring Island Gallery is the smallest venue used for ASV exhibitions. There is also the excitement of getting the work across the Yarra and up the hill to the gallery... it’s always an adventure and always worth it. Our show, “Against the Odds” is the first in the 2021 series and runs 16 January to 7 February weekends and public holidays 11:30 to 4:30 - the Island is a great place just to hang out. See you there!

Some members will remember Herring Island as their first approach to the ASV - coming along to see what the organisation had to offer a practising sculptor. 

In previous newsletters we surveyed members on the format for the 2021 exhibition - given that this will be our first physical exhibition in a year. The result: the 2021 exhibition will be a hybrid physical and online exhibition with all the Internet capabilities that we had for MIFGS Online 2020 plus an awesome real show.

Then we hit a glitch - the email to members with the details of the entry form and information seems not to have reached all the members....  Our social media team swung into action publicising the closing date... Marks for enthusiasm! The net result is that we currently have 38 works in the show - so a few late entries can be accommodated...  On a first in best dressed basis. I’ll stop at 45 sculptures.

And you can check out previous editions of the newsletter http://sculperenewsletter.blogspot.com/ to get some idea of the fun we have putting

on a show “in normal years”. 2021 will of course be a COVID Normal year so stand by for the differences and for how we can innovate to reach our audience and share the sculpture experience.
