ABOUT

Red Point Artists Association brings together Artists, Artisans, Craftspeople and Art Students in all disciplines to advance the visual arts in the Illawarra and beyond. Formed in May 2008, RPAA established workshops, studios and an exhibition gallery in Port Kembla where established and emerging artists could show their work inexpensively. Present and former members exhibit their work in many galleries in eastern Australia from North Queensland to Tasmania. Building on five years’ experience as an association, and combining the skills and knowledge of members and colleagues, RPAA now offers top quality intensive art classes over four terms a year. 2013 WINNER: of the “Wollongong Community Award 2013” at the Australia Day awards dinner. “Outstanding contribution to the Port Kembla community and the revitalisation of the Billy Cart Derby
