The Victor Harbor Art Group is an enthusiastic group of people interested in many different forms of art. Most are casual artists, some belong to co-operatives, some are professionals, some paint occasionally or for special exhibitions. This society aims to cover everyone's interest and needs in art.
Meetings are held on the first Monday of the month at 7.00pm at The Lutheran Centre, Adelaide Road Victor Harbor, South Australia. Temporarily suspended
Meetings vary from:
* demonstrations by accomplished, professional artists
* talks about various aspects of the arts
* video presentations
* hands on art material testing
and special interest topics as they are suggested by members.
Annual membership fee is $40
The Society also organizes workshops which are open to non members.
Recent workshops have included: Water Colours, Acrylics, Mixed Media, Collages, Scrape Boarding, Digital Art, Egg Tempera Painting and Painting to Music.
Workshops are sometimes planned away in other regions of South Australia, and may vary from a day to several days.
THE LAWN PAINTERS GROUP: A wonderful opportunity for artists
Members have been displaying and selling their work on the lawns of Warland Reserve for over 30 years! Usually on fine Sundays, but other days can be used.
An average Sunday in January sees 600 to 900 people viewing the paintings. Because the Art Society pays an insurance premium to the Victor Harbor Council, a small 10% commission is charged on all sales (payable on the day).
Members bring their own art, and stands and spend an enjoyable day with other artists while encouraging sales. Further instructions and helpful ideas are available at monthly meetings of the Society.
