Kyneton Art Group
|Region:||Daylesford & Macedon Ranges|
|Number of Members:||Approximately 35|
In 1977 a group of ladies attending evening art classes at the Kyneton High School decided to start afternoon meetings at the Presbyterian Sunday School Hall. This was the beginning of the Kyneton Art Group with just 11 members.
The group flourished under the thoughtful care of Stephen West who worked with a grant from the Victorian Arts Council and initiated the move into the Red Brick Hall as their regular meeting place.
The primary aim of the group is to provide fellowship and a studio space with opportunity for artistic creativity.
The group is a friendly one, not intimidating. Members work in any media available and their artistic experience is varied from beginners to professional artists. The group is also diverse in its styles and media. They provide great support and encouragement within the group.
New members are always welcome. To join the Kyneton Art Group, please contact Anna McGrath on 0411 896 852 for an application form or download the form from their website.
Annual Membership fee is $45.
The Group's Annual Art Show is held yearly in September, in conjunction with the Kyneton Daffodil and Arts Festival. All works are for sale.
It is a judged show with approximately $1,500 in cash prizes and vouchers as 2nd prizes. Unfortunately due to COVID 19 this usual event has been cancelled, but to replace the event, the members currently have a great range of artworks available for sale Online.
