What we do

Our Beginnings and Purpose..

The West Australian Society of Arts Inc. is the oldest art society in Western Australia and can trace its beginnings back to 1890 (Formally established in 1896)

The Society has over 180 members, from beginners to professionals. New members are welcome.

Patron:  His Excellency The Honourable Kim Beazley AC, Governor of Western Australia

The West Australian Society of Arts exists to advance painting, sculpture, architecture and the kindred arts in the Colony; to associate its members together for mutual work and study; and to disseminate that elevating influence among the people that must result from a study of the true and beautiful.
