Start your Art Collection with an original from the Victorian Artists' Society's Historic Bargain Sale - Works available from $100 to $500.
Hundreds of unframed paintings, drawings and pastels from established and emerging artists, who are members of the Victorian Artists' Society, will go on sale at the Society's annual historic Bargain Sale.
Works are on sale ranging from $100 to $500.
The Bargain Sale allows all of the 500 member artists to exhibit and sell their artworks unframed providing art lovers the opportunity to purchase an established artist's work at a very competitive price.
The Victorian Artists' Society, with its beginnings in the 1870's, was formed to create a school for artists and a gallery where artists could exhibit and sell their works to support themselves financially.
Since that time thousands of artists, including some of Australia's most famous painters - Sir Arthur Streeton, Tom Roberts, Walter Withers, Clara Southern and Sir William Dargie have all sold works from the Victorian Artists' Society's galleries.
Many of these works were acquired from the Victorian Artists' Society exhibitions by the National Gallery of Victoria.
Eileen Mackley, President of the Victorian Artists' Society said traditionally there has been a large attendance at the opening night as art buyers looked to maximise their opportunities whilst the full range of artworks are available.
