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.
And the good news is WE’RE BACK! The Thursday Painting Group finally returned for action on January 14th. We are all enjoying being back together and finding the inspiration to paint again. It’s wonderful to welcome our new members too.
We held our annual Christmas BBQ at the Old Cheese Factory on Saturday December 5th. A great get-together – we all loved seeing our artist friends for the first time in ages, and enjoyed a yummy BBQ. Although we were unable to present awards for the Monthly competition, (not enough Competition results due to the Covid shutdown), we were again entertained by Rodney’s Trivia and there was so much chat we really didn’t need anything else! 2020 Competition results will be included in 2021.
Keep an eye on this website for all the news regarding dates and times for all our activities in 2021.
Finally, membership was due for renewal on July 1st – forms were in the Newsletter and they are available via email or snail mail if you contact our Membership Secretary, Barbara Robinson.
