The exhibition will run every weekend (including Easter Monday) to April 7, 1130am to 4.30pm each day. Plus, don’t miss the unique cash and carry sale over the Easter long weekend – an opportunity to purchase small works by our exhibiting artists. We look forward to seeing you there!

Great Opening, Great Weather by Nature

The opening of the Contemporary Art Society's exhibition was well attended in perfect weather - a great combination for both the intense art admirers and those whose preference lay somewhere out in the courtyard drinking in the peace.
The Exhibition was opened by CAS President Robert Lee
Over the long weekend you can picnic and barbecue on the island, enjoy the peace and take in the exhibition over three days of relaxing weather - not too far from the madding crowds of Moomba.
Enjoying the courtyard

The glimpses of the work in this image are all you can get without being there - until CAS uploads the exhibition to their website http://www.contemporaryartsociety.org.au/.

Enjoying the art - the opening
