eskleigh - home of the las
Home of the Launceston Art Society, Eskleigh is located just south of Perth, along Scone Drive.
Perth is approximately 20km south of Launceston along the Midland Highway. From this new home, the LAS promotes art in the northern region by holding continuous exhibitions for its members, running professional workshops, conducting art therapy sessions for the Eskleigh Residents, assisting and encouraging very young artists through such programs as the Meandering "Art in Schools" project and generally providing social opportunities where artists, both professional and amateur, can meet in a friendly non-competitive atmosphere to inspire and encourage each other. These are the "pillars" which underpin the operation of the LAS and provide the activities and direction through which its primary goal of promoting Art in the wider community is effected.
