Burnside  Painting  Group

Community Art Group


We have arranged to exhibit at the RAH Centre for Community Health Gallery in February 2020 (2nd – 28th).

This presents an exciting opportunity for members to be involved.   We are aiming for a high quality exhibition of new or existing works.



There will be TWO STREAMS of work:

STREAM 1 – to cover 1 gallery wall, 8 x 2 metres or 6 x 2 metres depending on artist interest.  It will be a COLLECTIVE piece comprising 6 to 9 large canvases which will be visually coherent across the theme, and:

  • Each canvas will be either 100 x 75cms or 90 X 60cms (to be finalized depending on level of interest for this Stream)
  • The works will be in acrylic paints. Canvases and acrylic paints will be provided by BPG
  • Artists can work individually or as pairs in developing their idea and/or painting
  • As this is a collective work it will be a team effort with regular “check-ins”
  • This work could potentially be a “flagship” piece for future exhibitions at other venues

We are now seeking expressions of interest and ideas for their “panel” from artists

STREAM 2 – to cover the other wall

  • INDIVIDUAL works; new or existing; any medium; “no glass” RAH Gallery policy



An Exhibition Committee Working Group is managing the process. It will set the “rules”, run the selection process, and oversee progress especially of the Collective piece.  Contact: [email protected]

STREAM 1 interested members have provided an A4 size sketch of their intended work.

  • Nov– Dec 2019:- Artists to provide artwork details and sale price to the Exhibition Convenor if they wish to sell their work.
  • December 2019: - BPG “dress rehearsal” viewing of all works at the hall
  • Late January 2020: -  transport of paintings to RAH. Members to drop their works at the hall on a prior date to be advised.
