Lismore Art Club Inc. was established in 1960 and maintains a healthy, enthusiastic membership. It is accredited with the longest running annual art exhibition in the region’s history.
Once a month the club holds a workshop with an invited artist sharing their skills or members get together to share their interests. These workshops are the focus of the club. Outdoor painting days are another popular feature of the calendar. See the tutorial pages for more details.
The Lismore Art Club’s Annual Exhibition is held in August and is the highlight of the clubs calendar. It is held in high regard in the art community.
