Berwick Artists Society

About Berwick Artists Society

Berwick Artists Society Inc. was formed in 1992 by a group of local artists keen to share their passion of the visual arts.

Our purpose is to provide an environment which encourages local emerging, professional and hobby artists, and members of the public to network, develop their skills and contribute to art within the community.

The Society has grown to become one of the major art societies in the City of Casey and the surrounding Southeast region.

Painting demonstrations, workshops and exhibitions are held in the Function Room at the historic Old Cheese Factory, 34 Homestead Road, Berwick, throughout the year, with the exception of public and Christmas holidays.

We have monthly demonstrations by visiting professional artists and everyone is invited to attend. Please see the link for upcoming artists and entry fees.

Our Mission Statement: The mission of the Berwick Artists Society is to foster all forms of visual art by offering attractive and beneficial activities that will enhance artistic knowledge, skills and opportunities within a mutually supportive and strong social environment.


As we reach the end of 2023 we can again look back on an enjoyable and successful year at Berwick Artists Society. We have welcomed many new members, and now they’re part of our community and producing some wonderful works. The exhibition we held mid-year at Cranbourne Library was very well received. Thanks to all our 2023 monthly demonstrating and workshop artists too – Craig Penny, Catherine Hamilton, Maxine Wade, Kevin Weeks, Richard Impey, David Chen, Lyn Mellady, Michael Goff, John Bredl, Annee Kelly and Peter Smales. Your expertise was inspiring and we all benefited from your tuition. The Thursday Painting resumes on January 11, 2024 and we have some wonderful demonstrators booked to visit us in February, March and April – see details under “Monthly demonstrations”. Meantime, enjoy a beautiful Festive Season, relax and come back refreshed and ready to create masterpieces!











Our end-of -year BBQ, although moved inside the OCF due to a very rainy day, turned. out to be a thoroughly enjoyable day. Trophies were presented to the deserving winners of our Monthly Members’ competition – see the “Special Events” section in “Activities”
