The Victorian Artists Society is for artists and art lovers. Since 1870 they have been actively contributing to the development of art in Australia.

Their 19th century award winning Romanesque style building was one of the first in American style architecture to be built in Victoria. Many original features still remain today.

Victorian Artists Society holds a number of changing exhibitions throughout the year. Art is always on show. Art classes and workshops are also available all year round. Gallery hire available.

Come and visit the art galleries, explore their heritage and walk in the footsteps of some of Australia's past and present prominent artists. Entry is free.

The Victorian Artists Society is a registered not for profit organisation and a registered charity.
