About our group/organisation
WAG is a not-for-profit community organization based in the Wollondilly Shire, Southern Highlands of New South Wales, Australia. Our group has been operating since 2004 in which time we have been supporting artists and lobbying for a dedicated community space, a home for our group, to provide a permanent meeting place, workshop and gallery space.
Temporary gallery space
Our gallery has moved to a new temporary meeting/gallery space in Thirlmere, 19 Oaks Street, at the Old Post Office. The gallery will be open on the 3rd Sunday of each month. Our members work includes: oil, water colour, acrylic, mixed media, printmaking, ceramics, wood work, wood turning and textiles.
WORKS BY WAG Members Ongoing Exhibition @ Quintessential Coffee Shoppe & GALLERY 3/135 Argyle St Picton Recent WORKS BY WAG members are continuing to be displayed. The owner of Quintessential Coffee Shoppe, the late Sonia Curtis, wanted to support the local art group and invited us to display
our works. Manager Joel Shipman, has fitted the shop out with picture rails so the walls could be adorned with a colourful selection of interesting works. It wasn't long before our first sale and more have followed. So next time you are in need of coffee etc and arty nourishment, view the changing display of local Wollondilly masterpieces at the
Quintessential Coffee Shoppe! All are for sale! Open every day from 8.00am to 4.00pm. Many Thanks to Joel for his continued support.
