Royal Queensland Art Society – Rockhampton
|Region:||Central West Queenland|
|New Members||On Application|
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 Rockhampton branch of RQAS was formed in 1947 and has a long and proud history of supporting the arts and artists in regional Queensland.
In regional Queensland it can sometimes be difficult for artists to network with each other, to grow in their skills and expression and find a space to exhibit their work. The RQAS is indeed such a place, and has been an important group for local artists for over 60 years.
The Society meets every month except December and January. They are scheduled for every second Friday of the month at 1.00 pm in the clubrooms. All members are welcome and encouraged to have input into the running of our club.
New members are always welcome! The Society invites amateurs and professionals alike to support each other on their creative journeys. Application forms are available on their website. Upon return the application is presented at the next monthly meeting to be voted on by members present at the meeting. Once accepted the applicant is notified with a letter formally welcoming the new member to the Society.
A once off fee of $10 for affiliation to the Royal Queensland Art Society Inc has to be paid along with $40 for the current Annual Subscription. This makes a total of $50 for new members. Each year the Annual Subscription becomes due and payable in July.
The Society holds an Annual Art Exhibition and Sale for their members. These annual events are usually given a 'Challenge Category’. The shows are also judged with awards presented.
The Society organizes many classes and workshops throughout the year, covering many styles and mediums which are presented by professional artists.
Some of their regular tutors include, Sandra Biggin and Coral Morris.
