The formation of VASY is a natural extension of the vibrant and enthusiastic arts
community that has existed in the Yass district for so long.
VASY’s aim is to build on the Yass district’s passion for the visual arts by creating
opportunities for all ages and levels of experience in painting, drawing, allied
reproductive processes and sculpture.
The range of possibilities being explored for 2016 include:
the development of a network that encourages individuals in their art
practice, development, and appreciation of art;
demonstrations of art techniques and/or informative discussions on visual
art related subjects; and
establishing partnerships with artists as well as other arts and cultural
organisations including government agencies across the region and beyond.
VASY is an incorporated not for profit entity, operated by a voluntary committee
currently comprising local artists and enthusiasts Colin Nelson, Lorri Blackwell,
Warwick Sainsbery, Judy McColl, Barbara Sainsbery, and Angela Regan.
VASY is also a member of the well respected Southern Tablelands Arts (STARTS)
