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 March 2015

Mark Cowie
MIFGS this year was an undoubted success, $20,000 of sales on the first day. This show occupies a prime position in the Carlton Gardens and is very much our show case to the world if not then to Melbourne at large. Once again the diversity of work on display made sure that there was something of interest for everyone. I would like to congratulate all exhibitors and prize winners and give a big thanks to Mark Cowie for organising such a slick show and my gratitude to Jackie McKinnon and Bronwyn Culshaw for stepping up to the mark at short notice to run publicity.

Sculpture Day at McClelland Gallery

The 2015 MIFGS

Curator’s Report MIFGS 2015
Early morning at MIFGS 2015
The level of interest displayed by the tens of thousands of viewers of the 107 sculptures at this year’s ASV MIFGS Sculpture Exhibition was extraordinary and a testament to the myriad of creative endeavours among ASV members and fellow sculptors. At the close of the exhibition almost 20% (17) of all works had been sold, creating sales of almost $28,000.

Visit to McClelland Gallery and Sculpture Survey

The March meeting was a second visit to McClelland Gallery Sculpture Survey. Some 17 members and guests attended and many enthusiastically sent images and reports.

Opportunities to Exhibit, See and Do...

This section has some great information... must see....

A quick heads up!
Could all sculptors please check their profile pages - when the website was reset recently the "works to commission" and "runs classes" options were set to the default of NO. In order to fix this could you email membership@sculptorsvictoria.asn.au with your correct information and we’ll gradually get the system in order. It is worth checking from time to time - we only found out this time because we had an inquiry from the public.
