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.

President's Letter January 2013

Gillian Govan

Hi All,
I hope you have all have had a wonderful festive season with friends and family and a bit of a rest after the mad build up to Christmas.  I have just returned from a couple of weeks in the country where I worked for short periods in my very, very hot shed. While there I was very aware of the fact that many of our members are country members and some have already been threatened by this bushfire season. I would like to let them know that their friends in the ASV are thinking of them and hoping they and their families will keep safe.
