Victorian Artists Society Paint Out


Victorian Artists Society Paint Out

 
Brushstrokes of History in the Treasury Gardens
 
Victorian Artists Society artists painting in the Treasury Gardens yesterday.
 
Artists from the Victorian Artists Society replicated the historic legacy of the organisation with a Plein Air Paint Out in the Treasury Gardens on Sunday morning.
 
In the morning sunshine the artists painted the landscapes of the Treasury Gardens – the Garden’s landscape of trees and the historic Commonwealth and State Government buildings of the Government office precinct.
 
Picnics and paint outs in the Fitzroy Gardens and Treasury Gardens were a common social event for the members of the Victorian Artists' Society in the 1890s, which will celebrate its 150th Anniversary in 2020.
