Queensland Porcelain Artists Incorporated                   






Welcome to our china painting site!

If you are a china painter, or interested in china painting, perhaps you would like to join the Queensland Porcelain Artists association.If you would like more information qpainc@gmail.com

We meet in Brisbane in the suburb of Graceville on the second Friday of each month, except January. Meetings begin at 9.15am with morning tea, a demonstration or talk at 9.30 followed by the meeting  - and once a month we have a competition of members’ work.

The Association also has a Pioneer Porcelain Artists Branch - the branch covers the Pioneer River region (Mackay Area).

We also have a very extensive library, with nominal borrowing fees. Country members pay return postage only, and are welcome to write for books or videos; Branch members can request items from their Branch Librarian. The library is also open from 9am on meeting days.

The Association holds an annual Exhibition and sale of work in June. This event will be held on the weekend of 23rd & 24th June 2012 at the Mt Cootha Auditorium. This runs over the weekend, with the official opening on Saturday morning and presentation of any awards. The public is invited and all members are encouraged to participate in the display.   Pieces that won the Acquisitive award in previous years were held in cabinets at the Galerie Royale, along with the original Masters Trophy; the latter carries a set of 12 miniature tiles painted by the prize winners. The Trophy and all Acquisitive pieces have been removed from the Galerie Royale.  They are presently in storage while a new venue is acquired for their viewing.

All members receive a copy of our monthly magazine, the QPAInc bulletin, which has Association news and other articles on china painting.
