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.

News

2022 is off to a great start! Thursday Painting and Portrait Groups have resumed, and we have welcomed new members. It’s nice and toasty inside the Function Room at the Old Cheese Factory and always alive with conversation and laughter. Our first Demonstration Night was on February 23rd with Julie Goldspink, then came Michael Goff in March and Linda Finch in April. Bring a friend and enjoy an evening with a difference. .

We will be holding regular Workshops with professional artists this year, bookings essential. Also “internal” Workshops during Thursday painting days are happening. Quinton Baldwin started in March and “Quick Background Techniques with Watercolour”. In April Rod Arthur demonstrated “Colour Use in Watercolour”, and Dione Tiernan showed us how to create wonderful portraits. These internal Workshops are held on the first Thursday in the month. All terrific artists, and all Society members.

And, we’re very excited to again be holding an exhibition of our members’ work at the Cranbourne Library during July. This is part of the Casey Winter Arts Festival, and will feature our members demonstrating their skills during the exhibition at the library.

Lastly, we have a new email address, shown here at the bottom of each page. By clicking on it, you’ll be able to email us direct.
