What We Do
The Launceston Art Society has its home base at Eskleigh, Perth. We have a committee that comprises thirteen members who work on a voluntary basis to organise (with the help of our members) exhibitions, workshops, art trips, guiding, newsletters, art therapy and community programmes.
The LAS has a long history. We have been wielding the pencils/brushes since 1891 and have over 200 card holding members!
The Launceston Art Society aims to play an active role in promoting art in northern Tasmania. Eskleigh is being developed as a centre for art where artists both amateur and professional, of all age groups, can paint, display their art, develop new skills through professional workshops, inspire and encourage each other, and meet new friends.
It is hoped that LAS members can maintain the vitality of spirit in keeping with those initial young people of the latter part of the 19th century who had the vision to bring together artists to enjoy and present works of art.
