Ballina Art Society has been painting together for over 46 years, having held the 45th Annual exhibition in JUNE 2017.
The group has evolved from a small group of people painting together into a large group of over 90 members.
Members are mostly from the Ballina Shire, but the group also attracts people from all over the Northern Rivers. Members meet together to paint and receive tuition and guidance from tutors. Four different tutors provide guidance for the 4 terms, in a variety of mediums and styles. This changes from year to year, and tutors are selected by members popular choice. The society also holds weekend workshops for those who find it difficult to commit during the week. Different artists provide a fresh approach and varied perspective.
We exhibit at the Northern Rivers Regional Gallery every second year.
After having moved to different venues around Ballina, we now meet at the Ballina Scout Hall in Canal Rd, Ballina on Thursdays from 9am to 3pm. This has been our workspace for the last 7 years.
Sessions are not held during school holidays.
