Writing for pleasure to showcase the best Australia has on offer.
FIVE exhibition promotes artists' talent at VAS
In 1870, the Victorian Artists' Society began as a small group of like-minded and lay people to form the Victorian Academy of the Arts. They received a grant of land and erected a small bluestone building. Today this building still serves as a studio.
The VAS is registered as a not-for-profit organisation and a registered charity. Many of the activities held are organised by members of the VAS's council, who work on a volunteer basis.
