About Us

Sandgate Art Society (SasArt) was started by local Sandgate architect John Blackley in 2010. It was established as a place where you can dedicate time to uninterrupted artistic pursuit; which is not always easy for people who lead busy lives.

SasArt is open to anyone who would like to work in a friendly atmosphere with encouragement to continue their art practice on a regular basis.

We welcome novices, intermediate, skilled and professional artists.

Members work in a wide variety of media and display a diverse range of styles.

The popular untutored studio sessions on Monday nights give members the opportunity to exchange ideas and discuss the current direction of their work.

Opportunities exist for SasArt members to be involved in various art events, including our Easter Art Show, Expressions Exhibition and various art pop-ups.

Artistic camaraderie is high on our agenda with involvement in other local exhibitions, community events, gallery visits and various social functions.

If this has twigged your interest head to our Participate page and send us an expression of interest. Then you can pop in on a Monday night and see SasArt for yourself.

“Because in the end, you won’t remember the time you spent working in the office or
mowing your lawn. Climb that goddamn mountain.”
