OUR HISTORY

OUR ORIGINAL BUILDING

FLASHBACK

Flashback

How CAW exhibited in 1954.

Each ‘On Show’ exhibition by CAW makes history in its own ways.
As it happens, one of CAW’s friends, Dr Alan Jones, has been researching Canberra’s art societies.
We are grateful to Alan for discovering in the National Library the room sheet for our fifth annual exhibition in 1954.
Back then, Canberra Art Workshop was called the Canberra Art Club.
The 1954 exhibition included ‘hero’ paintings by three of the then modernist gods of the Sydney art scene, Roland Wakelin, Margo Lewers and Jean Bellette.
They provided six of the 75 paintings in the show (look at the prices!)
Our 1954 exhibition was turbocharged by including these ‘big name’ contemporary artists to boost visitor numbers.
And, nationally-known art personalities were directly involved with our organisation in other ways at that time.

Seven Decades of Art Activism

Over the decades, Canberra Art Workshop (back when we were called the Canberra Art Club) has been active in lobbying for the creation of the national capital’s major visual arts institutions.
Artists from around Australia have been associated with Canberra Art Workshop — including household names like Max Meldrum, John Coburn, Clifton Pugh, John Brack and Lloyd Rees.
It’s worth having a look at where Canberra Art Workshop came from and what we’ve achieved.
