Exhibiting artworks

The Society aims holds at least one major exhibition each year in Victoria.  Every second year is the prestigious Wild Awards at which artwork entry is by selection.  WASA also participates with other art societies at the annual Melbourne International Flower and Garden Show to hold a display and sale of artworks.  Our online exhibitions are another way in which artworks may be viewed.

Learning

WASA holds regular meetings in Melbourne at which there are demonstrations and talks about art and in particular, wildlife art.   Members share knowledge,  support and often wildlife-related similar interests.

Promoting wildlife art and artists

Our website and exhibitions are a great vehicle for the public to be able to view the artworks, and in some cases learn more about the animals and habitat.
