I photographed this spot before a watercolour workshop where I didn't do it justice.  Eventually I created a painting with meaning.

When I look at it now it takes me back to that special moment standing by the running water and enjoying the tranquillity, light and reflections.  The act of painting immersed me in the experience.

Art is a hobby I began on arrival in Nelson in 2019.  My last experience of painting was at school in Scotland

A huge thank you to The Menz Shed for building us new stands for our art exhibits and a storage unit for them as well! We are so grateful.

Jeff & Colin on prototype, Richard on frame fabrication, Peter on painting, Tom on brackets, and Treasurer Grant as support and storage fit out.

 

Also massive thanks to Gilly, who has spearheaded this effort.

WHAT OUR MEMBERS SAY:

Nicole Russell

The Art Group Nelson has been a great inspiration for me and my own artistic development. I especially enjoy the monthly meetings with different guest speakers. Every guest speaker has something special to offer and I learn new things every time. Also, the encouragement we get from show & tell, where the members share their work is incredibly valuable. Thank you to the Art Group for being such a welcoming and lovely group

Christine Harvey

Being a member of the Art Group Nelson, has been a great learning time for me, with very affordable art courses offered and helpful advice. Also the opportunities I've had to take part in exhibitions, and meet other artists too.

I am thrilled to be a part of the art group community.
Art Group Nelson is a great link which connects the community through art, providing workshops, tutorials and exhibitions.
Great work, thank you.

I am part of the new comers to Art Group Nelson from about 1 year and just want to say that my feeling is that I have been here for a quite long time. Wonderful people, wonderful way to share experience. I love to use encaustic but I used other painting mediums as well and being part of AGN open new visions for my life, to be creative like other members , to hope for better and to share my experience. This is the most exciting " not visible" part of the art and artist life.
