About Ku-Ring-Gai Art Society
Celebrating its 50th Anniversary in 2015, the Ku-Ring-Gai Art Society (KAS) is a non-profit organisation, run by artists for the benefit of artists and those interested in the arts. Founded in 1965, the Society has established and maintained a reputation for excellence, attracting artists from a wide spectrum of disciplines, covering both traditional and contemporary two dimensional works in all media. The Society benefits from the support of two Patrons, Meg Stewart and Lou Klepac. (see below)
The Society meets at 7.30pm on the first Tuesday of each month (except January) at the Masonic Hall, Cnr. Pacific Highway & Turramurra Ave. Turramurra, with guest speakers or leading artists demonstrating a variety of techniques in oils, watercolours, acrylics, drawing and much more.
The principle objectives of the Society are to foster all branches of the Visual Arts and to enhance the status of art and artists in the community by providing innovative and up to date activities for artists to advance their talents.
Art exhibitions, workshops and demonstrations are just some of the regular activities conducted by the Society.
Currently three exhibitions of KAS members’ work are held each year at the St Ives Shopping Village, the Annual Awards Exhibition is held in July, and additional exhibitions are held in March and October.
The Awards Exhibition in July offers a wide range of categories for which exhibiting members can enter. Attractive prizes are offered by the Society and by our generous sponsors and benefactors.
