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.
On this site you will find information about our art lessons, exhibitions and field trips, as well as a gallery of some of our members’ artwork. Membership forms, copies of past newsletters and useful links to art web sites will also be found.
