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.
Although last year we were unable to present the annual awards for the Monthly competition, (not enough Competition results due to the Covid shutdown), the 2020 Competition results will be included in 2021.
Keep an eye on this website for all the news regarding dates and times for all this year’s activities, including an acrylic painting Workshop to be held on April 29th. There are limited places available, for details please contact Mary Murphy on 0419 574859.
Finally, membership was due for renewal on July 1st – forms are available via email or snail mail if you contact our Membership Secretary, Barbara Robinson. Renewing members will receive a reduction of $10.00 in NEXT year’s membership: we’re giving a little bit back to you as you missed out on some of our activities due to Covid restrictions.
