About Adelaide Art Society
The Adelaide Art Society was founded in 1952 under the name “Citizens Art Group” by a small group of dedicated artists who wished to foster a high standard in the visual arts. Our studio, built-in 1878 was used for many purposes including years as a grain store.
It was purchased by the group in 1964 and since then additions were added. It consists of a large studio/gallery with excellent lighting, a smaller second studio, kitchen and storeroom. There are around 150 members of the Society, both amateur and semi-professional artists.
We aim to foster art among our members and the wider community by the provision of a comfortable well equipped working space. We offer activities including
- Painting groups (‘sketch groups’) covering a wide variety of subjects and situations.
- Workshops in all media.
- Opportunities to exhibit regularly, informally through sketch groups as well as formally, in selected exhibitions.
- Social nights/occasions providing discussion and information sharing opportunities.
