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

After an eventful year in 2020 due to the turmoil caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, it is satisfying to advise that we have resumed normal activities again.   The Thursday Painting group returned for normal activities on January 14th.

We all enjoy being back together and finding the inspiration to paint once again.   It’s wonderful to welcome our new members too.

Although we were unable to present the annual awards last year 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 acrylic painting Workshops to be held from late  April onward.   As the number of available places is limited, please contact Mary Murphy on 0419 574 859 to secure a place.

REMEMBER, membership subscriptions will be due for renewal on July 1st – forms are available via email or normal mail if you contact our Membership Secretary, Barbara Robinson on 0419 354 868.
