Since 1870, the Victorian Artists Society has been home to the avant-garde. A place of learning where the masters of tomorrow hone their skills. A public gallery that first shows the art of the future for savvy collectors. And a surprising destination that ignites a lifetime of passion in many unsuspecting visitors. Welcome to the beginning of something new.
In 1892, The Victorian Artists Society was built under the guidance of architect Richard Speight in the American Romanesque tradition. Some 122 years later, it now requires around $2 million to renovate and restore the heritage integrity of its National Trust registration. All donations over $2 are welcome and tax deductible. Larger corporate and public donations are also available with gallery naming rights upon request.
