The Australian National Brooch Show 2019

13 Apr 2019 8:19 AM | Anonymous

The Australian National Brooch Show is an initiative of the Contemporary Art Society of Victoria Inc. (CAS). The Society is a non-profit organisation, run on a voluntary basis by artists for the benefit of artists and those interested in the arts. It is based in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, and was founded in 1938. 

This is the 12th time we have held our Australian National Brooch Show - an exhibition small wearable artworks made by both established and emerging contemporary artists, and this exhibition offers all participating artists the opportunity gain exposure for their art. By having a theme of small wearable artworks, artist's have an opportunity to submit works via Australia PostNote: FREE entries applies to all accepted exhibitors, but artwork return postage still applies. All selected brooches will also be displayed on the CAS website.

Our last Brooch Show (2018) exhibition featured many art brooches on public display, representing many individual artists! We had extensive publicity, many favourable comments and great sales!
