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 WERE BACK FOR ONE WEEK! The bad news is that we’re now shut down again. BOO!
We now plan to recommence our Thursday Painting Group on October 8th. The Old Cheese Factory will not be ready for us to start any earlier, and that of course is dependant on the lockdown situation.
The next demonstration with John Bredl on Tuesday August 25th has been cancelled, as has the September Demonstration. We’ll invite our Demonstrators back when we are able. The AGM was also cancelled, and we now plan to hold it in October.
Finally, membership is 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.
Finally, we hope to see everybody in the not too distant future – keep safe and stay well.
