The Nepean Art Society was officially formed in 1967 by a small group of dedicated people. The enthusiasm of the current members continues.
Our aim is to provide a friendly environment where local artists can meet to learn, practice and exhibit their work.
The Society offers a variety of teachers and demonstrations and several exhibitions are held each year to showcase and sell the members’ work.
The Society has over 150 members and welcomes new members.

Born in Queensland, Margaret grew up with the colours of the outback and the rainforest which are reflected in her works. She gained a love of the Australian bush from her childhood family camping holidays.
She studied acrylic and oil painting under Maree Sproats at Dural Art Studios, and plein air painting from Kasey Sealy and John Wilson. Margaret also learnt watercolour and pen and wash with Joe Cartwright at Penrith. Her main influence though was her mother, Gwen Chalmers, who was a passionate painter of over 30 years.
She is currently tutoring at Springwood Art Society where her pen and wash classes are proving very popular.
