Beautiful paintings by top Sydney artists

Tickets are now on sale for this year’s ballot exhibition draw so get in early to purchase tickets. Viewing the exhibition is free.

How does it work?

Artists of the society donate original paintings. The paintings are hung on the walls and a catalogue is produced.

Ticket holders come to the gallery during the viewing times and list their favourite paintings. On Sunday 4 August at 12 noon we draw the tickets one by one until all tickets are drawn. When your ticket number is drawn out you say which painting you would like to have and the painting is taken off the wall and given to you. Every person purchasing a ticket will choose a painting. There are always more paintings on walls than tickets sold so that everyone has a choice of paintings. Don’t miss this fun event!

Head to the website for more information and see some of the paintings available.
