The Oatley 101 Society of Artists Inc. was inaugurated in October 1997 under the name Gallery 101 Association by six artists for the initial purpose of holding a monthly 'gallery' at which local artists would be invited to exhibit their work.
After several 'gallery' weekends and many enquiries from the public the artists moved to include other activities at the venue such as - art classes in oil painting, drawing, watercolour, monthly workshops, plus a Life Drawing Group.
In October 1998 the Gallery 101 Association became Incorporated and opened its membership and by the end of 1999, with over 90 financial members, the committee sought for the organisation to become a member of the Combined Art Societies of Sydney.
In 2000 Gallery 101 Association officially changed its name to - Oatley 101 Society of Artists Inc.
The Society now has a membership of over 200 and is continuing to grow.
The place where artists are dedicated to sharing ideas and experiences.
Learning from each other and encouraging all aspects of artistic endeavour in a friendly atmosphere.
The Society holds five free gallery exhibitions each year to present high quality paintings and craft for sale to the public.
It also holds monthly art demonstrations and workshops by experienced artists in various media. Popular classes in oils, acrylics and mixed media, a Life drawing sketch group. An active social studio painting group, an En plein air outing group plus childrens art classes.
