Dungog Archies

Sponsored by our Medical Centre, with first prize $750 and second prize $250, this has become quite an event.

Time is running out for viewing this year’s Dungog Archies at 254 Dowling St Dungog. Open every day 10 AM – 2 PM through to 14 April 2019.

Dates and Events to Remember 

Drawing Class

It is in full swing at 5:30 on Mondays. $5 per class, under 18’s are free.


We are considering applying for grants which would cover infrastructure, i.e. new, cheaper lighting, and programs to further arts in the community. If  you are interesting in participating in writing grants, please let me know.

I know it’s too soon to start talking about September’s Annual Exhibition, but it is worthy of note that we have already been invited back for that month to the Botanic Gardens, so you might want to start thinking about a botanic theme.

Do you have 4 hours a month to spare?

Please check schedules in the black binder in the gallery work room and fill in a date. If you’re not sure how to be in the gallery we will happily provide training during your first days there. There are still several opportunities on it for you to help keep us functioning. Thank you. For those of you who are scheduled and find you have a conflict, the calendars will provide a list of people to call to see if you can trade.

Dungog Arts Society’s mission is to foster creative activities for all members of the community and to further develop artist awareness. Our latest activities and upcoming events can be found on our News page.

We can be found at the foot hills of the World Heritage listed Barrington Tops National Park, on the main street of the historic town of Dungog, 266 Dowling Street Dungog NSW 2420.

The original art group began in 1973 with a small group of artists and was eventually formed into a Society in the year 2000. Our main aims are:

  • To nurture an interest in art in the Dungog community
  • To provide facilities for local artists to meet and work together
  • To have classes for people to learn drawing and painting techniques
  • To venture out into the field and enjoy the great outdoors.

Our current committee is listed on this page.
