This morning over 100 members of the Victorian Artists' Society were the guests of the Governor of Victoria, The Honourable Linda Dessau AC, and Mr Anthony Howard AM QC at a Reception at Government House. 

During her speech, the Governor reflected on the many historical connections between Government House and the Victorian Artists' Society, including the fact that Government House and the Victorian Artists' Society were built during the same period.

The Governor also spoke about the walls of Government House housing many paintings including those by our renowned artists Walter Withers, Arthur Streeton, and Frederick McCubbin.

We sincerely thank The Honourable Linda Dessau AC, Governor of Victoria and Mr Anthony Howard AM QC for making us feel very welcome and for the recognition of the work of our artists.
