Support the arts!

The Forbes Arts Society is an organisation solely dedicated to the betterment of the communities in the Forbes region having the simple aim “to foster the visual Arts and encourage their enjoyment in the communities of our Region'. It is a non-profit organisation relying entirely on volunteers to help with the many activities that take place during the year.


Anyone who is interested in the arts in our region can become a member of the Society. Should you have any questions about the Society or its activities please contact the president or secretary who will help you.

Membership of the Society is open to people who are interested in the practice of one or more of the visual arts and who wish to take part in the many activities of the Society.


Members may display their work in the Platypus Gallery, take part in workshops and a wide range of functions and receive the Society’s correspondence and invitations to the Society’s activities and events. 


It is the objective of the Society to make membership happy and fruitful and we hope that this will be the case for you.
