About Warwick Artist Group

Since its inception in 1962, The Warwick Artist’s Group has promoted and supported the visual arts community in the Southern Downs. Over that time, it has provided the opportunity for members and non-members to extend their practice through learning programs that seek to engage and  enlighten participants. In showcasing through exhibition the type of artwork the group produces, we not only strengthen and enrich our membership, but are also a draw card for artists throughout the region who can share their expertise.

We encourage involvement in the wider community and have members of all ages who identify with, teach and support persons with disabilities, those with learning difficulties, those with mental health issues and those who first language is not English.


Warwick Artist Group presents a weekend of creative ways to embellish silk fabric and try your hand at Watercolour Pen and Wash. Take part in one of our mini workshops or just pop by to watch one of our artists demonstrate their processes and techniques. Our Studio will be open from 9am to 4pm on 17th and 18th October.  


To register for any workshop or demonstration, message us through our Facebook page at Warwick Artist Group Inc or email us at
