Our 2018 Members Exhibition has opened to a wonderful reception with the Awards night last Friday. The exhibition was judged by the very highly credentialed John Haycraft http://www.johnhaycraft.com The exhibition is open until Sunday until 12th August.
All local artists are invited to participate in our 9 x 5 Exhibition. Held in the tradition of the great Impressionists, our Exhibition is intended to celebrate the beauty of the ‘small’ artwork. We warmly invite all local artists to join us in this Exhibition. Entries must be made on the entry form.
To inspire your creativity, we’re also holding art workshops to encourage artists to share their ideas and create artworks together. The workshops are free so bring along your paints, reference material, some lunch and your enthusiasm. We will provide a glass of wine and some nibbles. We also have 9 x 5 boards for you to purchase at a modest $3 each. Bookings are essential.
To sign up for the next workshop, which will be held on Saturday 14 July from 1pm – 4pm at Wallarobba Arts and Cultural Centre, 25 Edgeworth David Avenue, Hornsby click here

Famously held in Melbourne in 1889, and opened on 17 August, this celebrated Australian Art Exhibition featured the works of Arthur Streeton, Charles Conder and Tom Roberts, amongst others. Four of the works purchased from this exhibition were recently donated to the Art Gallery of South Australia and were valued in excess of $3M dollars. The Exhibition has been described as “a celebrated event in Australian art history.” Coincidentally, our 2018 Exhibition will also be opened on 17 August – some 129 years later.
