About the Society

The Aims of the Society

To encourage local artists and to create awareness of art in the district.

A small group of art lovers from all walks of life met for the very first meeting in March 1987. All of them were very enthusiastic to start an art society because there was nothing in the area to serve their needs.

The first annual exhibition was not until the following year, 1988, and was a great success. Since then the Society has gone from strength to strength with more members joining over the years. Not everyone in the society has had formal training and many learners have gone on to be very accomplished artists. We offer a community service to people who love to paint or enjoy art.


Where and when we meet

AT:  CREYK PARK PAVILLION, Waltham Rd. Armadale, Western Australia

The first Thursday of every month (except January) 7pm

A short, and friendly, meeting takes place followed by tea or coffee and a chance to meet with friends. Then a demonstration by a well known artist, or a workshop. This is always inspiring !!

Visitors are always welcome, so just come along - there is no charge. Tea, coffee and biscuits, are supplied, and there is a raffle and sales table.

Meet the artists and view the many artworks on display and for sale at very reasonable prices. We have many exhibitions and events like Easter Fair at the Art House Gallery. Keep looking on Latest News Page for information about these.

The Art House is situated at 63 Railway Ave., Kelmscott and is open to everyone 10am - 3pm every Friday & Saturday. Lessons and groups during the week means that it is open at those times as well, look for the times on the classes and groups page.

Members and non members are welcome to call in to the Art House.


Exhibitions

There is no commission on the sale of paintings at any of our exhibitions, this makes the prices very reasonable.

A major Art Exhibition and sale of works is arranged annually, usually late October/early November. This is one of the most successful exhibitions in the area with a very large percentage of the paintings being sold. It is held in the Armadale Hall, Jull Street, Armadale, a Heritage building, and a beautiful venue for this very popular exhibition.
