Berwick Artists Society
About Berwick Artists Society
Berwick Artists Society Inc. as formed in 1992 by a group of local artists keen to share their passion of the visual arts.
Our purpose is to provide a group environment encouraging local emerging, professional and hobby artists, and members of the community to network, develop their skills and contribute to art within the community.
The Society has since grown to become one of the major art societies in the City of Casey and 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, excepting public and Christmas holidays.
We have monthly demonstrations by visiting professional artists and the public 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.
In this strange time of Covid 19 virus, many things are changing, and here at Berwick Artists Society we’ve had to make some changes too. These changes WILL be temporary, and be will revised according to the virus situation. Thursday March 19th was the last Thursday Painting day to be held inside the Function Room at the Old Cheese Factory, which has now closed.The Demonstration Nights, Paint-outs and Portrait Groups have also been cancelled at least until the end of June. Details of all our activities shown on this site have not been changed – you will need them for reference when things eventually get back to normal. Please keep painting – it seems we all find it difficult to keep focused without the inspiration of other members around us, so fingers crossed things change in the not too distant future. We hope you stay fit and well, and that we can catch up – at a distance – soon.
