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.

Cost for becoming a member is $50/year, although the gallery is focused on people who paint rather than sculptors the ASV is always interested in life drawing workshops. I am not sure if the price they charge is competitive to what the ASV has found before, but at least you don’t have to get a certain number of people to do this, and you don’t have to be a member to attend the workshops.
