Combined Art Societies

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 fifteen member societies.

CASS ArtDirect – keep this opportunity in mind for October 2020!  CASS ArtDirect offers an opportunity to explore the culture and character of Sydney’s communities from the Central Coast to the North Shore, from the Nepean to the Randwick and south through St George to the Macarthur area. CASS ArtDirect offers a unique opportunity to visit the art studios of your local artists.

Visit our CASS Art Direct website to see our month-long Open Studio Weekend schedules available each year in September.
