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 AC QC, Governor of New South Wales and Mr Dennis Wilson.

The Combined Art Societies of Sydney, or CASS as it is often known, is a not-for-profit organisation which represents art societies and their members across the Greater Sydney Region and the Central Coast.

Our 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.

CASS is a proud supporter of Careflight Australia

The CASS Online Art Sale

In time for Christmas, CASS are hosting an online art sale with special prices on extraordinary original artworks. The sale is at our online exhibition site from 6th December until 9th January. Nothing over $450 – perfect for that special gift.

The Art of Sydney Awards Exhibition

The annual Art of Sydney Awards Exhibition is a premier event showcasing the work of artists from the fourteen member societies which together are the Combined Art Societies of Sydney (CASS).

For 2021 CASS took the opportunity to take the Art of Sydney online! This exciting exhibition was a juried event and we are extremely pleased and honoured that renowned artist Mr John Haycraft was our judge.

The Best in Show, sponsored by The Art Scene, went to John Wilson for his work ‘Moody Morning – Capertee Valley’. All the awards are showcased on the exhibition site.
