Launceston Art Society continues to promote wonderful art. 

Multiple exhibitions are held annually in an ever-expanding number of venues. In the past few years, several major events have showcased the work of members. 2016 saw a celebration of the Society’s 125-year history in an exhibition held in a wonderful gallery space at QVMAG, highlighting work from members past and present. In 2018, the inaugural and immensely successful exhibition ‘The Esk’ was conducted at Eskleigh. Now in its second year ‘The Esk’ continues to promote Tasmanian Art, attracting entries from across Tasmania. 

Eskleigh Foundation has continued its support of the Launceston Art Society, not only in providing a wonderful home and exhibition space for the Society, but also in sponsoring ‘The Esk’ exhibition. We are indeed indebted to all our sponsors for their continued support of LAS and Tasmanian art.

An important demonstration of Launceston Art Society’s encouragement of artists is the Art Therapy Program for Eskleigh residents. Some of this work will be showcased in this exhibition alongside that of experienced and novice exhibitors. LAS is committed to encouraging and providing an opportunity to support and promote Tasmanian art and its artists.

Many have contributed tirelessly to the organisation and success of this event. Thank you all for continuing to help promote fine Tasmanian art in this exciting arts event.
