Postcard Promotions for RSASA members!
The Royal South Australian Society of Arts, together with Passing Out Distribution's (POD) Postcard Racks (formerly Avant postcards), is offering a limited run postcard promotional offer for the benefit of the Society and its individual artists. It involves a print run of 5000 or more postcards of your personal image on one side, some limited information contact details on the reverse, all distributed for free throughout more than 100 locations around Adelaide and the suburban areas.
In this special promotional deal RSASA will support its artists participating by putting forward half of the $385 printing cost to reduce the total cost to the artist to a manageable $192.50.
Places are limited and the next intake may be mid or late March, contact us and download the guidelines document for more information.
We would like to thank the talented artists involved so far - David Braun (top), Bob Landt (middle) and David Baker (bottom) - for taking part in this amazing deal. Look out for their postcards and their work in Society exhibitions!

A VISUAL HISTORY
The Royal South Australian Society of Arts, 1856-2016
Volumes One & Two
edited / collated by Dr Adam Dutkiewicz
The RSASA has made a continuous contribution to the Arts in Adelaide since Colonial times, having been established in 1856 by the artist and teacher Charles Hill. The RSASA celebrated its 160th anniversary in 2016 and published the book titled A Visual History: The Royal South Australian Society of Arts 1856 - 2016, edited and collated by Dr Adam Dutkiewicz. This long awaited book summarises the rich history of the RSASA since its inception. The book is produced in two volumes, the first funding the second, which was published late in 2017. Volume One comprises a vast amount of historical material, with a survey of the foundational years and early artists, and profiles of its affiliated bodies, Presidents, significant officials and Honorary Life Members. In all it features nearly 100 artists, including over 40% of them female. It contains 420 pages and 449 illustrations. Volume Two deals with other significant artists, featuring 150 in total, across eras and media since 1908, including a number of artists who have emerged through the Youthscape programme. There is a section dealing with historical and current prizes offered by the Society. It contains 424 pages and 616 illustrations.
Available now at the RSASA Gallery: Cost $50 + postage and handling.
