Minister to open new headquarters and exhibition

The newly built headquarters of the Central Australian Art Society in Crispe Street (off Brown St), Alice Springs will be officially opened by the Minister for Arts and Museums The Hon. Gerry McCarthy MLA at 6.00pm on Friday May 25th, 2012. The Minister will also open an exhibition of member’s work at the same time.  Art society members and the general public are welcome to attend.  Light refreshments and entertainment will be provided and people are encouraged to wear a loud shirt/top to the opening.

This is a significant occasion for the society given that the previous headquarter was destroyed by fire on the 15th August 2006 and it has taken an enormous effort on the part of the society and it’s members to rebuild on the same site.

The headquarters will also be open to the public from 10.00am till 5.00pm on Saturday 26th and Sunday 27th May and at the same time during the following weekend, 2nd – 3rd June.  Printing workshops will be held and people will be able to see the facility and the art exhibition.
