The Kilcoy Art Society Inc (KASI) has had a busy April with various workshops, and has more exciting news for May.


The KASI has just completed a series of three Beginner’s Watercolour classes, with the last one held on 20 April.

The same participants attended each class as different elements of learning watercolour were covered with the last one focusing on negative painting and the use of value.

KASI also just ran a Sip and Paint workshop in conjunction with the Kilcoy Bowls Club.

Around 20 people participated in the workshop, held offsite at the Bowls Club and it was a lot of fun.

If you would like to attend one of our art workshops, visit the Kilcoy Court House Art Gallery Facebook page for information.


The Kilcoy Courthouse Art Gallery has a new quarterly art exhibition.

The official opening will be held 2pm Sunday 12 May on The Lakeside Deck, Kilcoy Courthouse Art Gallery to coincide with Mother’s Day.

The theme is ‘Best Funny or Fancy Hat’ and there will be the People’s Choice Award, A Mother’s Day raffle, music, nibbles and the bar will be open.

Entry is still only $10 and everyone is welcome.


Thank you to Noela Lowien for being our AOM during April with her fabulous ‘From the Past’ exhibition.

Several paintings sold which is a testament to Noela’s beautiful work and people’s love of our local history.

May’s AOM is Vicky Lilwall.

Vick started learning about oil painting and dabbled with watercolours in the late 1980s and then fell into folk art and decorative painting and spent many years during the late 1990s working in this field.

Art for Vicky is a place to escape to, a place where you can lose time, a place of discovery, a place where your soul and creativity meet and speak.

She has now discovered the beautiful world of soft pastels and is self-taught in this medium, but intends to learn more about the world of soft pastels by joining future workshops.

Vicky enjoys getting out on the road to explore and discover our beautiful countryside.

There are so many different colours and moods to our landscapes, and she gains a lot of joy and inspiration from what she sees in our own beautiful backyard.

Please support Vicky by visiting the Kilcoy Courthouse Art Gallery during May to view her beautiful artwork.
