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.

MIFGS 30 March - 3 April 2022

Dear fellow sculptors,

I can’t believe that it has been two years that we have been unable to hold an exhibition at the Melbourne International Flower and Garden Show (MIFGS).


IMG is committed to running MIFGS next year and are currently proceeding with all the planning to have a COVID safe event. The dates for the show are 30th March to the 3rd of April 2022.

As mentioned previously we have a new site which is still central and in a high traffic area of the Show.  IMG is trying to create a new and exciting art precinct of which we are a central part.

We will be making a call for entries in October so keep an eye out in the newsletter.

Via the newsletter we will keep you posted of new information as it comes to hand.

If you have any queries or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me either via email (cacioli@netspace.net ,au) or on my mobile (0429575299).

We look forward to your support and making next year’s MIFGS a great success.

Best wishes
Paul Cacioli
ASV Coordinator MIFGS
