The Society of Arts – Comprises a major group of South Australian artists and associates tasked with the purpose of encouraging interest and understanding of art in the community. Housed in the Institute Building, corner of Kintore Avenue and North Terrace, the Society is proud to occupy its most attractive gallery.
WHAT WE DO
Whether you are an artist, student, a professional, an amateur, or share an interest in the whole universe of art, becoming a member of the Society provides you with occasions to mix with friends and discuss so many aspects of visual art.
Through our exhibitions we show the public a wide range of works of art generated by our members. By sponsoring collections by national and international artists, opportunities are provided for all to enjoy art of very high quality. Joining in the work involved gives satisfaction though personal contact and seeing the results displayed in the gallery.
Quality Standards –
The Society maintains its own high standards while at the same time fostering and encouraging emerging artists-whether young or old – to exhibit their work. Providing for professional development through workshops and demonstrations is therefore a significant responsibility.
Special Interest Groups –
The Society sponsors life drawing, plain air painting and portrait groups enabling artists with interests in those categories to share their outreaching endeavours. “Youthscape” places emphasis on the younger artists through independent planning of activities leading to prize winning competitions.
