Oatley 101 Society of Artists
|State:||New South Wales|
|Number of Members:||Over 200|
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 160 and is continuing to grow.
Oatley 101 Society of Artists is a group who are dedicated to sharing ideas and experiences. They learn from each other and encourage all aspects of artistic endeavours in a friendly atmosphere.
Membership forms can be downloaded from their website. Annual membership fee for new members is $33 and $28 per year for renewals.
Membership of the society gives you the opportunity to take part in all the society's activities at a reduced rate. Plus, financial members may submit their work to their 'Fabulous Fakes' Exhibition, their Annual 'Sale' Exhibition and their Annual Members’ Exhibition.
