Welcome to the Combined Art Societies of Sydney
The patron of the Combined Art Societies of Sydney is His Excellency General The Honourable David Hurley AC DSC (Ret’d) The Governor of New South Wales.
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.
