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.
- The AGM will be held on 11th November - with a great guest speaker

Last year it was decided to save the trouble of individual BBQing, that we supply hot roast beef, cold chicken, bread sticks and a couple of salads and there would be a charge to cover these costs.[$10]It was such a success that I would like to continue this idea. The rest is up to you, so BYO applies regarding salads, desserts etc., and of course the mandatory beverages.
Entry forms for both these exhibitions will be with you shortly. In the mean time here are the dates
Herring Island 16 to 31 January 2016 including an event on Australia Day. There will be a pre Christmas drop off on 19th December at 10am for those people who can’t be there on 15th January. We need sculptors to demonstrate any form of sculpture (non lethal) or for floor talks. Contact Jenny 0418 971 897.
MIFGS: 16 to 20 March 2016 This is the one where over 100,000 people comes to see your work - Mark needs a full team of sitters, demonstrators and helpers on the range of tasks that make this show great. You can see Mark's letter (much better written than this) later in this newsletter - Contact Mark at firstname.lastname@example.org
As much as I have enjoyed the opportunity over a number of years to present a professionally organised and curated exhibition to members, I would like to inform you that the next ASV MIFGS Sculpture Exhibition will be my final in the role of curator. It is definitely time to hand the baton on to someone or others to progress the exhibition into its next phase/era.

The growing interest in and ongoing success of the Tesselaar Sculpture Prize is due to the imagination, flights of invention, highly-skilled and dedication of the sculptors presenting their works for exhibition. And into its eighth year it continues to be an honour to curate this exhibition and competition, viewed by over 100,000 people each year.
Thanks to all who helped in the organisation, the set up and bump out and sitting of the exhibition. I also thank all entrants for their cooperation in observing the conditions by which we had to abide. I hope you all enjoyed the camaraderie and friendship of like-minded people as much as I did.
Looking for sculptors interested in creating work using recycling materials for the Textile Art Community Opening Workshops on 24th October 2015.
