New home for Drummoyne Art Society

12 September 2017 | Living

The former Concord Early Childhood Centre has been transformed into a creative hub with a studio, gallery and community workshop classrooms for art classes, following an agreement with the City of Canada Bay for the space to be used by the Drummoyne Art Society.

Now known as gallery57, the facility will provide the community with an opportunity to enjoy and explore arts programs with support offered to local visual artists. Some of the regular activities include photography, multicultural art, oil and acrylic painting, crafts and other visual hobbies.

Officially opened in September, the new space is the first permanent home the art society has had in its history. An exhibition featuring 150 artworks by members is currently on display, with new exhibitions to fill the space on a rotating basis throughout the year along with classes and demonstrations.

“Whether you are a beginner, practising artist, or just want to develop your talents, all members of the community are welcome to join us in the practice of visual arts,” Drummoyne Art Society President, Jose Guiterrez said.

“Subject to tutor availability and student numbers the gallery will be offering acrylic, oil, mixed media and watercolour painting classes with crafts, photography, ceramics and children’s school holiday workshops scheduled for the future,” she said.

DAS is currently seeking new members, sponsors, friends, volunteers and supporters. To find out more contact drummoyneart@yahoo.com.

Established in 1964, the Drummoyne Art Society is one of the oldest art societies in Sydney. For more information on the classes visit the website.

gallery57 is at 57A Wellbank St, on the corner of Clermont Avenue, Concord.
