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 for January 2015

It was a delight to help launch the ‘Narrative’ exhibition on Herring Island recently. Once again I was staggered by the diversity of thought provoking works on show and meeting fellow sculptors and guests made for an invigorating day. And I must say that Herring Island is one of the more entertaining bump-ins we do.

Herring Island Summer Arts Festival 2015

The show is always tricky for getting your work ready - so a fair number of sculptors offered their Annual Exhibiton works another airing - and it paid off for Veronque Derville: ‘Free Spirits" is going to a good home.

Images of the works will be up on the ASV website soon. Here you can see some works - and some images from the Australia Day event.

The first sale was... Andrew Bryant's "Balance"
