Royal Queensland Art Society – Gold Coast
|New Members||On Application|
|Membership Fee:||$80 per annum (single)|
The Queensland Art Society, in Brisbane was initiated in 1887. As the Society grew, they later established two other locations; in Rockhampton and the Gold Coast.
The RQAS on the Gold Coast has a palatial, purpose-built gallery in a lovely park location facing the beach at Broadbeach. Members exhibit their paintings each month and if selected, enjoy the distinction of being hung with other top quality work in the main gallery.
This selection process is operated within an Artists Co-op and for a small fee is supported by advertising to help generate better sales of paintings. Every month many paintings are sold to local and overseas buyers.
The pride and prestige of belonging to this dedicated Art Society is as strong today as it ever was.
