The Adelaide Art Society was founded in 1952 by a small group of dedicated artists who wished to foster a high standard in the visual arts. Our Studio, built in 1878 and used for many years as a grain store, 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 professional artists.

Our aim is 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.
