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! But not until 2021, when the Thursday Painting Group gets underway on January 14th at 10.30am.
Some of our members have been meeting up outside at the Old Cheese Factory for a coffee and a chat on a Thursday late morning – come and join up, weather permitting. not much painting, all talk!
Our Annual General Meeting will be held outside at the Old Cheese Factory under-cover area near the cafe site, everyone welcome, but please BYO refreshments, (the cafe is closed). The current committee office-bearers have all re-nominated, but we have some new faces on the general committee. Please think about joining our Committee – most of your job as a Committee member simply entails putting forward your ideas for the Society and helping out when necessary, eg at our exhibitions. It’s a great way to make new friends and support BAS.
We ARE holding our annual Christmas BBQ at the Old Cheese Factory on Saturday December 5th,11am. It would be wonderful to see our members and friends there simply because for most of this year we haven’t been able to catch up. Members will receive emails with details.
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.
