'Magpie Bathing Time', collage by Lizzie Bohan
The Victorian Artists Society galleries have a long history supporting painting in Australia. In fact, the architectural plans displayed in our foyer show that the Hammond Gallery was intended for oil paintings, while the Frater was meant for works of watercolour.
For this exhibition we will not be accepting works of oil or watercolour (we will also not be accepting works in acrylic, drawing, pastel or gouache). Instead, we will be showcasing non-traditional mediums and materials that can often be overlooked in major exhibitions, or even materials that are not commonly used in art. This includes Inks, Mosaic, Printmaking, Digital, Collage, Mixed media, Photography, Sand, Wax, Coffee, Sculpture and much more.
You can bring your artwork into the building for the VAS Pushing the Boundaries Exhibition on either:
Wednesday 22 March 11am-3pm & Thursday 23 March 11am-2pm
Members may submit up to 2 artwork or 2 sculptures (for a total of 2 entries)
The entry fee is $10 per artwork and can be paid at reception or by using the online entry form here.
You have the OPTION of entering work on our online gallery.
Click on the link to view the instructional video below showing you how to enter your art work online. Online entries must be uploaded to the online gallery by Tuesday 21 March for processing.
Please note that this is a two step process. You must first upload your artwork to your profile, and then enter it into the exhibition. Simply uploading the work does not automatically enter it into the exhibition.
Remember to bring your artwork into the galleries if you enter the work online.
Online viewing for the VAS Pushing the Boundaries Exhibition will open on Friday 24 March with all artworks for sale.
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.
