About Membership

We are constantly on the lookout for new members whose talents would mesh well with the society. If you are a wildlife artist who is passionate about depicting nature in their art, or are a newly emerging artist interested in fostering this interest in subject matter with the help of more experienced mentors, you may consider applying for selection to this not for profit organization.

As a group we work together to promote our work, participate in member's only exhibitions and at the same time promoting our conservational and environmental message through art.

While we are a not for profit incorporation staffed by volunteers, we do have many expenses that are shared among the members (please see membership pricing at the bottom of this page).

  • You will be contributing to the QWASI mission of Education through Art.
  • You will feel the prestige of being accepted into one of Australia's leading wildlife Art Societies.
  • You will be eligible to enter QWASI exhibitions which are open to members only (unless otherwise agreed upon with conservation groups or art societies). There may be up to three major shows in a year.
  • You will have full representation on the official QWASI website which is updated regularly. Once selected you will be asked to provide all the relevant materials for your page which is linked to your personal website.
  • You will receive the QWASI newsletter which comes out every two months in full colour. It contains up and coming open exhibitions, member's art news, world art news, coming events and much more.
  • You will have the opportunity to post exhibitions, news and events on the website and in the newsletter.
