Welcome to the Combined Art Societies of Sydney
The Patrons of the Combined Art Societies of Sydney are Her Excellency the Honourable Margaret Beazley AO QC, Governor of New South Wales and Mr Dennis Wilson.
The Combined Art Societies of Sydney or CASS is run by a small group of volunteers who are dedicated and enthusiastic Art Society members.
Their aim is to unite and strengthen the standing of art societies in our community, to gain greater recognition for art societies, and to encourage a standard of excellence among individual artists within our societies. The CASS at this time has fourteen member societies.
