This new publication is a 104-page, full colour history of the Society’s existence and its important place in the cultural history of Melbourne and Victoria over the past 150 years.
It steps through each decade with a retelling of the major events of each decade, lavishly illustrated with sketches, plans, cartoons and news items from the society’s archives.
The second half of the book contains examples of work from every year of the society’s most prestigious award, the VAS Artist of the Year, first granted in 1973.
As the first major publication of the Society since 1970, it is an important record of a society that has undergone many changes and evolved into a vital institution whose teaching program, exhibitions and awards attract the very highest standard of artistic achievement.
We would like to pay our respects to the traditional owners of the land on which our building stands, their leaders, past, present and emerging.
